Make A Difference Column
Welcome to the monthly Make A Difference Column.
The mission of the Make A Difference Column is to inspire voluntary conservation actions from all walks of life through the lens of "making a difference" to our shared island community resources. This monthly column is a partnership between Whidbey Island Conservation District, the Whidbey Weekly newspaper, and other conservation-oriented organizations, including local, state, and federal government partners, non-profit organizations, the private business sector, and landowners like you. The column's purpose is to highlights relevant and real-time natural resource conservation information, expertise, and resources for the benefit of all Whidbey Island residents.
Each new issue will be posted here for you to view, and an archive will be maintained below. We also promote the column through WICD's Facebook page, so be sure to give us a "Like." Look for our contributions to the Make A Difference Column published in Whidbey Weekly, a free newspaper distributed throughout the island each week and available online. Each of our new articles will be posted here for you to view, and an archive will be maintained below.
