The Stevens County Conservation District is a non-regulatory agency. Our goal is to develop and implement programs to protect and conserve soil, water, farmland, range land, forests, wildlife and other renewable resources throughout the district. We provide technical and financial assistance to landowners within the district boundaries who have natural resource concerns or problems. We also provide educational assistance to schools and organizations within Stevens County.

Our Mission

“To promote the wise use of renewable natural resources within Stevens County”

Who Runs the District?

The District is governed by a board of five supervisors, who are all local residents. Three supervisors are elected by residents within the District and two are appointed by the State Conservation Commission. The board may also include an unlimited number of associate members. All of the members’ time and effort serving the District is on a volunteer basis.

How We are Funded?

  • The District operates by obtaining grant funding from local, state, and federal sources. We receive no money from tax assessments.

     Board Meetings
    The board of supervisors meet the second Thursday of each month at 8:30 a.m. (except during Daylight Savings Time they meet at 7:30 a.m.) at 232 Williams Lake Road.  All meetings are open to the public.

    About Us

    Stevens County Conservation District (SCCD) was established in 1942 as a conservation district.  We are a non-regulatory agency that was created to bridge the gap between local landowners and state and federal government.  We are directed by a board of supervisors that consist of five volunteers. three are elected and two are appointed, who serve for three year terms and oversee the operation of the District.  These volunteer Supervisors establish policy, set priorities and direct the District's operations.

    SCCD believes local citizens should lead conservation and the final responsibility for conservation lies with the landowner.  SCCD's goal is to assist landowners in the development and implementation of conservation practices that protect our county's valuable natural resources.  The District can offer technical and financial assistance for :
