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.

WASHINGTON, Cascadia CD – Cascadia Conservation District, Lake Wenatchee Fire and Rescue and Washington’s Department of Natural Resources are leading the 100 Acres Healthy Woods Challenge program to serve as an incentive for landowners to conduct fuels reduction work such as thinning small trees, limbing up large trees and reducing brush.

“This is a really special grant opportunity that probably won’t come around again,” said Patrick Haggerty, Cascadia’s forestry program manager.

To appeal to landowners to create more fire resilient landscaping, the 100 Acre Healthy Woods Challenge offers cost-share reimbursements to landowners. A group of five or more adjacent landowners that agree to thin a total of 20-50 acres will be eligible for a 75% cost-share reimbursement for the cost of the contractor completing work. An individual landowner is eligible for 50% of cost-share reimbursement for 20 acres or less and if a group of adjacent landowners corralled to sign up and covered a total of 100 acres, they could be eligible for up to 100% of funding.

WASHINGTON, Snohomish CD – With $10.4 million to grant, NOAA supported 19 new habitat restoration projects in 11 states. The funding source from NOAA’s restoration center supports productive and sustainable fisheries, healthy ecosystems, and resilient communities across the nation.

The Whidbey Basin is a critical “hot spot” for species recovery in Puget Sound and funding will go to the Tulalip Tribes, Snohomish Conservation District, The Nature Conservancy and WDFW to advance restoration of up to 2,350 acres of estuary habitat and 37 miles of river habitat.

Snohomish Conservation District will be leading a planning process to develop a pipeline of projects that support agriculture viability, salmon recovery, flood risk reduction and tribal priorities in Snohomish County.
