For over 60 years, the King Conservation District has helped farmers, foresters, and other private landowners steward their resources and manage their lands.
This partnership helps keep working lands economically productive and enhances our regional environment for everyone.
For less than it costs a single adult to get into the Puyallup Fair, King County property owners support stream restoration, reforestation, community gardens, farm planning, farmers markets and a host of other efforts that protect the enviable quality of life we all treasure and improve the health of Puget Sound.
Today, the resources available to help private landowners steward their lands are uncertain.
Tight budgets across the county are forcing hard choices. Some decision-makers don’t understand the role conservation districts play in protecting natural resources – some are even questioning whether conservation districts have a role to play at all.
But, consider this: No other locally-focused stewardship agency has the ability to directly assist private landowners, and private landowners control over 60 percent of the landscape in our county.
If you’ve benefitted from what the King Conservation District has to offer, you’re planning on using our services in the future, or you just believe that the District is a vital part of protecting our natural environment and keeping working lands viable, please take a moment to contact the King County Council, your local city council or mayor, or your local community newspaper to voice your support for the King Conservation District.
