Welcome to the Whitman Conservation District
Conservation districts are a GRASSROOTS, LOCALLY DRIVEN conservation agency that identifies local natural resources problems and develops local, voluntary solutions.
It is our mission to promote the wise, ethical and sustainable use of Natural Resources by leadership in the education and assistance of all people in the District.
The Whitman Conservation District will promote the implementation of the best available conservation measures and provide a forum for local input on Natural Resource issues.
We take available technical, financial and educational resources, whatever their source, and focus or coordinate them so they meet the needs of the local land user for conservation of soil, water and related resources.
