Conserving Today for Tomorrow
2022 Planning Survey
Help Set Priorities for Conservation Planning
Conserving Today for Tomorrow is the district's outreach effort to engage the community in our five-year planning process. We're looking ahead and considering what community services to develop for the next several years.
Since 1940, the Okanogan Conservation District has worked cooperatively with residents, landowners, and land managers to care for the air, water, land, and wildlife in Okanogan County which is the largest county in Washington with over 3.4 million acres.
Over the years, our services have adapted to the needs of our community. In the past decade, we've seen a greater threat from more frequent wildfires. In fact, the demand for our services has grown from 20 to over 200 requests for conservation plans and cost-share support since the Carlton Complex Fire in 2014. In addition to wildfire preparedness and recovery planning, we also support wildlife habitat, agricultural production, and conservation education.
We need your input to help design services and programs to support community and individual goals to conserve natural resources. Whether its composting in the backyard, building a defensible space to protect your home from wildfires, protecting air quality through chipping events, or creating a new irrigation system that will save water and energy, we want to know what is important to you and how we can help meet your conservation goals.
Your input will help prioritize support for natural resources for use and enjoyment today, and for generations to come.
