Our Mission

Whatcom Conservation District's mission is to assist land managers with their conservation choices.

Conservation on the Ground

Our History

Since 1946, we have worked with landowners and farmers to manage natural resources in Whatcom County. We are building on our tradition as we meet today's challenges with expanding programs and opportunities to help people protect the land and its resources.

Serving Landowners

The District has a wealth of information concerning water quality issues, management of small and large farming operations, and implementation of best management practices (BMPs). The District publishes newsletters, hosts educational workshops and tours, and offers opportunities for volunteers to get involved.

Local Board of Supervisors

The Whatcom Conservation District is governed by a board or five supervisors, who are all local residents. Our current board is a diverse group, including a beef producer, dairy producer, a retired forester, small farmer and a former, state-level public servant. Click here to meet our board members.
