The purpose of the Washington County Conservation District is to preserve our county's soil, water and related natural resources by avoiding practices contributing to soil wastage and soil erosion. We communicate with our partner conservation organizations to identify ways to achieve goals and enhance success towards sustainable natural resource management. Through the District we help local citizens manage these important resources by demonstrating proper farm practices, surveying potential land disturbances, issuing permits, and following regulations. The Washington County Conservation District continues to manage and offer programs to serve our community.
