South Douglas is Looking for a Supervisor

Each conservation district (CD) in Washington is governed by a board of five members, called supervisors. Three are elected locally by the public, and two are appointed by the Conservation Commission. At least two of the elected and one of the appointed supervisors must be local landowners

South Douglas Conservation District will have an appointed supervisor position open early in 2022.The application form must be completed by March 31, 2022.or operators of a farm.

The five member Board of Supervisors meets on the first Monday of each month, except August. The supervisors set policy and direction for the Conservation District, serving a three year term without compensation. (We can reimburse for travel to monthly meetings) They oversee conservation practices in southern Douglas County, promoting education and protecting natural resources.  Currently, the district is involved in developing the Firewise Program in Douglas County, Tree and Shrub Sale, water quality projects, and a cost share program for its cooperators, including fuels reduction on Badger Mountain.  Your time would involve monthly board meetings as well as community contact to identify resource needs and provide assistance, whether technical, financial or educational.

If you are interested in becoming a supervisor, please call the office, 745-9160.
