Who We Are

The Winooski 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 (Orange, Williamstown and Washington). The district receives a limited amount of base funding ($8,000 in 2014) each year from the Vermont Agency of Agriculture Food and Markets and relies heavily on grants and individual donations to complete its work. The Winooski Conservation District focuses its limited resources on completing conservation projects in the Winooski River,  Browns River, and portions of Lake Champlain’s sub–watersheds.

What We Do

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.

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

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. 

When we meet

The WNRCD board of supervisors and staff meet monthly, usually on the second Tuesday of the month at our Berlin office. Please email info@winooskinrcd.org for dates.
