Partnerships, financial aid helping Clark Conservation District stay afloat

May 30, 2019by ncdea


WASHINGTON, Clark CD – A few months ago, it wasn’t clear if the district could continue to offer free technical assistance like this to property owners. In September, the Clark County Council voted down a request from the district that would have charged most property owners $5 per parcel to keep the district financially afloat. The district said the new charge was needed to keep it viable after it saw a large source of grants from the state Department of Ecology dry up.

“The district isn’t going on all cylinders,” said Stu Trefry, southwest regional manager for the Washington State Conservation Commission. “But what I think we’re seeing is there is a bunch of people that didn’t want to let it die, so we rallied around the district, and we are keeping it as relevant as we can.”
