Board Supervisor Election and Appointment
The Clark Conservation District is pleased to announce an opportunity to contribute to conservation and your community by serving on the Board of Supervisors. Supervisors are public officials who direct the activities of the conservation district. Although they serve without compensation, they are eligible to be reimbursed for appropriate expenses.
There will be two open positions available on the Clark Conservation District Board of Supervisors. One board position is elected by registered voters residing in the District. Another seat is available for appointment by the Washington State Conservation Commission. An applicant must be a registered voter in Washington State, and may be required to own land or operate a farm. Applicants for appointed positions do not have to live within the district to apply.
The Clark Conservation District Board of Supervisors will hold a meeting starting at 7am on February 1st, 2018 at Cameo Café, 7703 NE 72nd Ave., Vancouver, WA to adopt a resolution setting the date, time, and location of an election to fill the elected Conservation District Supervisor’s expiring term.

We would like to thank all of you who supported our system of rates and charges. You wrote letters of support, passed information to your friends and families, and attended our public hearing, among other things. You showed the County Councilors how much you value our work as a District.
Unfortunately the Councilors, despite countless positive testimonials from the public and not a single person against us, decided to not pass our rate. The Councilors will be putting it in committee to be decided at a later date. Again, please know that your support in this was invaluable. We were so moved to hear how the District has positively impacted your lives. We are staying positive that perhaps our system of rates and charges can be implemented next year.

Conservation Districts are the necessary connection between landowners and the agencies that provide technical and financial assistance as well as the necessary compliance programs that will solve our natural resource problems. Working with local landowners, conservation districts can coordinate the mixture of technical assistance and available cost sharing as well as information and education necessary to encourage good stewardship of our environment.
Clark Conservation District (CCD) was established in 1942 and is a legal sub-division of state government that administers programs to conserve natural resources. We are a non-regulatory agency that was created to bridge the gap between local landowners and state and federal government.
The Clark Conservation District promotes conservation through Best Management Practices (BMPs).
Clark Conservation District's goal is to assist landowners in the development and implementation of conservation practices that protect our county’s valuable natural resources. We can offer technical and financial assistance for:
- Wildlife habitat improvement
- Fish barrier removal
- Water Quality
- Educational programs
- Agricultural production
- Regulatory compliance
- Erosion control
- Forest Management
- Riparian area protection
- Conservation planning
- Wetland restoration
Our Mission Statement:
The mission of Clark Conservation District is to protect, conserve, and improve the natural resources of the District. Clark Conservation District focuses on water quality, soil management, and critical habitat areas. We also assist landowners in the use and conservation of natural resources. Community members and landowners play a vital role in ensuring the overall success of our District. From planting trees to becoming involved in policy making, individuals can make a difference in their community.
How are we funded?
The District receives funding from grants.
Who governs us?
The District is governed by a board of five supervisors, who are all local residents. Three supervisors are elected by residents within the District and two are appointed by the State Conservation Commission. The board may also include an unlimited number of associate members. All of the members’ time and effort serving the District is on a volunteer basis.
