Our Mission

Thurston Conservation District, a non-regulatory agency, strives to conserve and sustain the beneficial use and protection of local natural resources through partnerships with the County’s rural, agricultural, and urban communities, as well as local, state, federal, and tribal agencies.

What are Conservation Districts?

Conservation Districts are legal subdivisions of state government that administer programs to conserve natural resources. Each District is self-governed by volunteer community stakeholders who establish priorities and set policy. Districts exist in practically every county throughout the United States.  We work collaboratively with landowners to preserve soil health and water quality.

The Thurston Conservation District promotes voluntary stewardship among private landowners in Thurston County. Our services are free to the residents of our County. We are committed to finding available resources and coordinating them in a way that they meet the needs of our local community.
