Whidbey Island Conservation District

The Whidbey Island Conservation District serves present and future residents of Whidbey Island by supporting a healthy environment, and promoting voluntary, incentive-based options for conserving natural resources through educational outreach as well as technical and financial assistance.

The Whidbey Island Conservation District (WICD) Board is composed of local farmers, landowners, and concerned citizens and is dedicated to maintaining Whidbey Island's renewable natural resources. Its priorities and goals include:

  • Protection and improvement of surface and groundwater quality
  • Assisting good stewardship of Farm & Forest land 
  • Watershed planning and implementation
  • Riparian restoration and enhancement
  • Fish and wildlife habitat enhancement
  • Conservation education

These goals are met through WICD's extensive technical assistance and public outreach programs. WICD's volunteer board of supervisors guides and administers WICD's programs to provide education and on-the-ground assistance to our cooperators. WICD staff works with private partners, local, state and federal government agencies, agricultural and environmental organizations, and other conservation districts. The WICD is funded through grants, a special Island County assessment, an annual native plant sale, and state general fund money requiring a dollar-for-dollar match.
