WASHINGTON, Thurston CD – Thurston County commissioners this week approved the way Thurston Conservation District gets a third of its revenue for the next five years, a vote of confidence for the embattled agency.

“I definitely think the district has been able to demonstrate to the taxpaying community and to the commissioners what we’re capable of and our ability to implement projects and do great work,” Executive Director Sarah Moorehead said after the vote Tuesday.

Thurston Conservation District works with local landowners to manage land and protect natural resources through an array of programs and resources. It’s a public, non-regulatory agency.
