Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP)

In Washington state all counties are required to identify and protect critical areas on agricultural lands. The Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP) offers a voluntary, incentive based approach for counties to meet that requirement by encouraging locally-led conservation programs and periodic reporting of stewardship practice implementation.

Benefits of VSP

Agricultural producers are NOT regulated
by their level of protection of critical areas

VSP promotes agricultural viability.

VSP is reported at a watershed scale so there
are no identifying landowner characteristics.
(Counties not in VSP, report at the parcel scale).
