Better Ground is about taking small stewardship actions at home and in our communities 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’re here to help you achieve your better ground goals, by sharing resources and expertise that can help you live in harmony with the land and sea.
What is Better Ground?
“Better Ground” is an effort to increase conservation outcomes in our region, and to enroll more citizens in conservation efforts. It’s a collective initiative of your regional Puget Sound Conservation Districts, a group of 12 trusted agencies who help you find solutions for your backyard, farm, forest, or property within your community — and all for free! Conservation districts are one America’s best-kept secrets; they are local units of government that provide free-to-the-public natural resource management programs that make a real difference.
To learn more about what your local conservation can do for you, connect with us on your favorite social media platform, or contact us directly.
