The mission of the Whidbey Island Conservation District (WICD) is to assist in the management of natural resources on and around Whidbey Island for present and future generations, inspiring voluntary conservation practices through education outreach, as well as technical and financial assistance.
Established in 1967, Whidbey Island Conservation District is guided by a five-member volunteer board of supervisors and local staff with professional expertise, all of whom have a personal investment and interest in improving the quality of life in their communities on Whidbey Island. We believe that most people agree conservation works best when people who live and work in an area learn to take care of their own natural resources.
As political sub-divisions of state government, conservation districts provide resources and programs that are voluntary and incentive-based, and available to all interested landowners and residents that live on Whidbey Island. WICD's technical assistance and educational programming is also free, non-regulatory, and can be tailored to meet your conservation goals. We are the "boots on the ground" here on Whidbey, and WICD strives to be a community resource that empowers landowners to conserve natural resources on their property. Camano Island residents are served by the Snohomish Conservation District.
Whidbey Island Conservation District staff provide a wide range of natural resource assistance in the topics areas of Farm Planning, Forest Stewardship, Firewise Assistance, Local Agriculture Outreach, Resources for New & Transitioning Farmers, Backyards & Habitat, and Water Resource Management for shoreline, bluff, and wetland property owners, as well as landowners wishing to learn more about drainage solutions using alternative stormwater management and Low Impact Development techniques. WICD also hosts an annual Native Bare Root Plant Sale and has numerous volunteer opportunities for individuals interested in donating their time and energy to benefit conservation actions on Whidbey Island. Contact us with questions about our programs, services, and volunteer opportunities. We also encourage you to subscribe to our email lists to be connected with resources and publications - including our bimonthly e-newsletter and quarterly Weed Bulletin - on a regular basis.
