Long-Range Plan Update

As stated in statute (see RCW 89.08.220), conservation districts in Washington are required “to prepare and keep current a comprehensive long-range program recommending the conservation of all renewable natural resources of the district.” Your input and feedback are critical to truly meet the needs of our community. Click here to access the draft update to our plan for 2022-2027.

The first couple of pages include our mission, vision, and values, and lay out the basics of how conservation districts fulfill our non-regulatory role in environmental protection and improvement. The bulk of the plan includes our specific natural resource conservation goals, desired outcomes, and priority actions. Please let us know if you think something is missing in terms of goals and outcomes. Is there a resource area we’re neglecting?

Please provide your comments by emailing us at info@jeffersoncd.org. We will be accepting comments through January 21, 2022. We appreciate your input, as we’re all in this together.

Celebrating 75 years of conservation in our community!

We invite you to read our 2021-22 Winter Newsletter to take a look back on our history, and a peak ahead at our upcoming native plant sale, virtual native landscaping workshop, and 2022 district supervisor election.
