Palouse Conservation District will hold annual meeting Jan. 30

 

January 2, 2020



The Palouse Conservation District’s annual meeting will be Thursday, Jan. 30, in the Gladish Community Center’s View Room in Pullman.

This meeting will give a recap of what the conservation district has been doing in 2019 and will also gather feedback on how to improve its services for the new year.

There are currently four conservation districts within Whitman county. The Palouse Conservation District covers the southeastern part of the county, dipping down to Uniontown and up to Garfield. The other three conservation districts are Pine Creek Conservation District, Palouse-Rock Lake Conservation District and Whitman Conservation District.

Conservation districts are non-regulatory units of local government dedicated to land, water, and soil conservation. Districts offer different types of voluntary services such as erosion control, habitat restoration, fire prevention, etc.

In 2018 the Palouse Conservation District implemented conservation practices to 12,426 acres of land and signed 59 cost-share agreements, according to the Palouse Conservation District website.

Assistance from the conservation district can range from free technical information and consultations to partnering with landowners on larger conservation projects, such as reduced till agriculture and livestock management.

The Jan. 30 event will run from 5:30 to 8 p.m. with dinner being served at 6 p.m. Entry and dinner are free to those who attend.

For those who plan to attend, the Palouse Conservation District encourages residents to RSVP beforehand. Reservations can be made at palousecd.org/ annual-meeting.
