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.
