A unique partnership between conservation districts and state and federal agencies has been formed to bring financial and technical assistance to help retain working family forest lands in SW Washington. 


This program, called the Southwest Washington Small Forest Lands Conservation Partnership, is a collaborative effort between Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW), Washington Department of Natural Resources (DNR), Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC), Washington State University Extension (WSU), and eight southwest Washington conservation districts to work with landowners on forest stewardship. The partnership will provide up to $4.09 million in technical and financial assistance, including $1.3 million of NRCS funding through the RCPP and $2.79 million of non-federal funding from SCC,
