Working to restore and protect natural resources in the San Juan Islands since 1947

What We Do


Conservation Corps

Community involvement with results

We work towards training tomorrow's stewards by tending to our world-renowned resources today. The Youth Conservation Corps (YCC) and adult Islands Conservation Corps (ICC) are successful outdoor recreation and work training programs for youth and young adults. Our programs connect young people with local lands and waters through community collaboration and hands-on stewardship work.

Landowner Services

Free services for private landowners

The Conservation District brings resources to the table to help landowners improve the performance of their land operations. We are a non-regulatory agency that can link private landowners to technical assistance, professional planning and funding for their farms, forests, waterways and general resource needs.

Habitat Improvement

High-impact conservation work

We work with local, state and federal partners to achieve regional targets for environmental sustainability. Some of our partners include State Parks, National Parks Service, US Fish and Wildlife, San Juan County Land Bank, San Juan Preservation Trust, and many more.
