The mission of the Washington State Conservation Commission is to lead the citizens of the state in the wise stewardship, conservation, and protection of soil, water, and other related natural resources. The Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC) is the second oldest commission in the state. Established in 1939 the SCC continues to work with conservation districts across the state to assist landowners in the implementation of incentive-based practices to protect Washington’s natural resources while maintaining viable agricultural production. The Conservation Commission appoints two of five members of a board of supervisors for the 45 county-based conservation districts in the state of Washington. Conservation Districts are authorized under RCW 89.08.
