KCCD Welcome

Welcome to the kittitas county conservation district!

The Kittitas County Conservation District works with local landowners and land managers (public and private) to conserve natural resources that are vital to our economy and our quality of life. At the heart of our work are collaborative efforts to partner with landowners, public agencies, tribes and the general public to create and maintain resilient working landscapes through voluntary incentive based measures.

Our district’s roots run deep in the community. The Kittitas Conservation District was created in 1942, followed by the Cle Elum Conservation District in 1948, as part of a national response to the Dust Bowl. The two districts combined in the 1960's to create the Kittitas County Conservation District. We have worked for 75 years to assist local land managers to address the many challenges to long term sustainability.


Providing leadership, technical, educational and financial assistance to landowners and land users in their utilization and management of natural resources.

Who We Serve and Why

We serve the citizens of our community (county, state, country) to ensure the long term use of natural resources in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner using non-regulatory, voluntary approaches. Like us on Facebook for more on us!


The Kittitas County Conservation District is recognized by all private landowners as a source of financial, technical and educational assistance in Kittitas County; and by local, state and federal authorities as the organization of choice to implement on-the-ground stewardship activities.
