Thurston Conservation District’s Community Wellness Response

Thurston Conservation District is committed to doing our part for our community and the wellness of our employees, board of supervisors, and volunteers. Community response actions we are taking include:

  • As directed by the Governor, and to protect the health and safety of our community TCD staff are working remotely until further notice to help stop the spread of COVID-19. Email/voice mail at our mobile number are the best way to reach staff during this time
  • Offering remote technical assistance! Have questions about how to get your garden ready for spring? Interested in learning more about conservation planning? We would love to hear from you!
  • Our Soil Testing Analysis Program is re-open with some changes that will help contribute to our communities wellness. Check out our Soil & Nutrient Testing web page to learn more
  • The Equipment Rental Program has been transitioned to meet social distancing requirements and keep our connections and employees safe. Check out the Equipment Rental web page for instructions.
We appreciate your patience and understanding as we transition through these changes. We look forward to continuing to serve you and contribute to the health and wellbeing of our wonderful community.
