What Resources & Education Are Available at WICD?
Whidbey Island Conservation District's goal is to promote natural resource conservation to the public through workshop offerings, training, individual site-visits, presentations and exhibits at large-scale events like Sound Waters University, the Whidbey Gardening Workshop, and the Whidbey Island Area Fair, and we also host a great resource library at our office at 1 NE 4th St. Coupeville, WA 98239. We provide this service in addition and as a compliment to the technical services of Farm Planning, Resources for New & Transitioning Farmers, Forest Planning, Firewise Assistance, Alternative Stormwater Management Assistance, and Local Agriculture Outreach that form the core natural resource topics we address.
Are you a Homeowners Association board member interested in distributing information to your residents? Are you a local non-profit interested in partnering on a conservation workshop in the future? Perhaps you are a public or private school teacher and are looking for a guest expert to present to your class in grades K-12? Look no further! Whidbey Island Conservation District staff can work with you to design a presentation or workshop, or compile handouts and resources for you, on natural resource topics. Please contact Kelsi at (888) 678-4922 to learn more.
