Do you know how your conservation district helps landowners? Snohomish Conservation District is a sub-unit of state government that works with ALL landowners, including farmers, foresters, urban and rural residents on a host of natural resource issues.
From soil to plants to water, the District strives to protect natural resources. The District is not a regulatory agency, nor are we part of Snohomish County government. Voluntary assistance is key to who we are and what we do. This is true for all 45 conservation districts around Washington.
For dairy producers, we offer support by acting as a liaison between regulatory agencies such as Department of Ecology and Washington Department of Agriculture, and the dairy producer. We strive to help producers keep their farms in compliance with state law, but we do not enforce the law. The District has a long-standing rapport with dairy producers, as well as others in the agriculture community, and has been assisting farm and forest owners for 72 years.
