Our Conservation Commission Members

About the State Conservation Commission

The Washington State Conservation Commission (SCC) is the coordinating state agency for all 45 conservation districts in Washington State. Together, the SCC and conservation districts provide voluntary, incentive-based programs that empower private landowners to implement conservation on their property.

The SCC was created by the legislature in 1939 (RCW 89.08.070) to support conservation districts through financial and technical assistance; administrative and operational oversight; program coordination; and promotion of district activities and services.

Who sits on the SCC Board of Commissioners?

Commission members hail from across Washington State and include people with experience in ranching, farming, law, management, public service, natural resource management, and more.

Three members are elected by the Washington Association of Conservation Districts membership. Four members are appointed to represent state agencies. Two members are appointed by the Governor, and one member represents the Washington Association of Conservation Districts.
