Who We Are

The Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District is one of 14 Conservation Districts throughout Vermont. It encompasses all of Chittenden and Washington County as well as parts of Orange County. The WNRCD encompasses parts of more than five different drainage basins including: the Winooski River,  LaPlatte River, Lamoille River, White River and Lake Champlain.   The District completes valuable conservation projects within the areas of agricultural assistance, forestland enhancement, urban conservation and watershed stewardship.  Initiatives depend on partnering with watershed associations, conservation commissions, towns, the public and state and federal agencies to identify projects and to address the common goal of soil and water conservation.

What We Do

   Agricultural Assistance

We are committed to providing agricultural producers with the technical, financial, and educational resources they need to be exceptional stewards of the Vermont landscape.

We are a strong advocate of sustainable forestry practices, and work to ensure that Vermont’s forest land resources retain their economic, social, and ecological benefits.

  Urban Conservation 

We work hand in hand with local partners to promote appropriate stormwater management practices, providing technical, financial and educational resources. 

   Watershed Stewardship 

We constantly seek to improve and protect Vermont’s network of rivers and streams so that everyone may enjoy the myriad benefits that these water resources provide.
