If you live or work in the Stillaguamish watershed, District staff can help you manage your farm, protect water quality, promote fish & wildlife habitat, and address other issues on your property. Need help funding your project? Depending what your project is, the Conservation District may be able to share some of the costs.
If your neighborhood isn't covered in one of our special project areas, don't worry we can still help. The Snohomish Conservation District provides a full range of services to those who live outside of a special project area or when a project ends.
The Stillaguamish watershed is unique in that it contains shellfish beds at Port Susan and in South Skagit Bay. Because of previous downgrades by the Department of Health, there is a group that is tasked with monitoring activities and promoting stewardship to protect water quality and shellfish resources. They are the Stillaguamish River Clean Water District Advisory Board.
They generally meet monthly, except during the summer, at Peace Lutheran Church in Silvana. They meet in the evening and have representatives from various parts of the watershed, as well as industry, forestry, agriculture, two tribes, Snohomish County and Snohomish Conservation District. Call Sean Edwards, at Snohomish County Surface Water Management, for more information on this group. Sean can be reached at 425-388-3024 or email@example.com.
