Since 1940, the Winooski Natural Resources Conservation District has promoted the wise use, sustainable development, and conservation of our district’s natural resources. We connect residents and communities with education and technical assistance to implement on-the-ground projects to improve water quality, soil health, and wildlife habitat.
Areas of Focus
Where We Serve
We serve residents of Chittenden and Washington County Vermont as well as three towns in Orange County Vermont (Orange, Williamstown & Washington). Our area of service covers five watersheds including: the Winooski River, LaPlatte River, Lamoille River, White River and Lake Champlain Direct.
Each day, we rise and begin our work across Vermont’s lands and waters. Vermont’s Conservation Districts embrace the role of protecting natural resources and recognize the Indigenous Abenaki Community on whose land we gather. We thank the Abenaki people for inspiring us to continue work that began over 10,000 years ago. As the original stewards of the land, they have cared for Ndakinna, the place we now call Vermont, shaping its culture, agriculture, food systems, arts, and landscapes across countless generations. We recognize, respect, and honor the history of the Abenaki and commit ourselves to maintaining the responsible use of the land.
