As the Whidbey Island Conservation District, we work to inspire voluntary conservation practices and assist in the management of natural resources on and around our island through education, outreach, technical, and financial assistance - for the benefit of present and future generations.
We are a designated special purpose district under RCW 89.08, and our service area includes the residents and landowners of Whidbey Island. We are locally led and guided by the needs of the public, but we are also part of a larger network of Washington state's 45 conservation districts that serve its 39 counties.
Did You Know?
We are a free, non-regulatory, & voluntary service.
We look forward to helping you achieve your land use goals while improving our island's shared natural resources.
Boots on the ground for Better Ground
Better ground means taking important stewardship actions at home and in our communities to create healthy soil and water, to provide healthy food, and to conserve land, water, forests, wildlife and related natural resources. And you don’t have to go at it alone. You have a partner, your local conservation district. We encourage you to explore our web resources to see actions you can take to improve your land and the greater island community, working together to achieve better ground.
