Skagit Conservation District

The SCD's mission is to provide voluntary, incentive based options that support working landscapes while protecting and enhancing our natural resources.  Its priorities and goals include:

  • Protection and improvement of surface and groundwater quality
  • Watershed planning and implementation
  • Riparian restoration and enhancement
  • Forest stewardship
  • Community wildfire prevention & protection
  • Fish and wildlife habitat enhancement
  • Conservation education

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