Welcome to South Yakima Conservation District

The South Yakima Conservation District is a political subdivision of the State of Washington that seeks, utilizes, and coordinates assistance from all available sources. We are authorized under provisions of the Washington State Soil and Water Conservation District Law, Chapter 89.08  in the revised code of Washington (RCW).

Our primary goal is to promote the wise use, development, and conservation of our renewable natural resources  by providing assistance to local landowners to address conservation resource concerns.

South Yakima Conservation District was organized and chartered by the State of Washington September 24, 1974. It was a consolidation of the former Toppenish District whose name changed from Wapato (1949) and Lower Yakima Valley District (1947).

The Conservation District is governed by a Board of five Supervisors who serve voluntarily. There are 45 Conservation Districts in Washington State.
