Who We Are
The White River NRCD is one of the 14 Natural Resources Conservation Districts (NRCD) in Vermont, established in 1939 under the Soil Conservation Act. Our original mission was to help farms combat soil erosion, but we have since grown to assist all landowners improve their environmental stewardship through the implementation of conservation practices and environmental education.
We are overseen by a board of supervisors comprised of publicly elected landowners from our district. If you are interested in becoming a board member, Click Here.
We are primarily funded through state and regional conservation grants. Under our primary grant agreement with the state Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets, the Agricultural Water Quality Incentives Program (AgCWIP), we preform outreach with our district's landowners to understand their needs and assist them with Required Agricultural Practices (RAP) compliance.
What We Do
We provide environmental education, outreach, and support for landowners and land managers in Vermont's Orange and Windsor counties (see map below for our district's boundary).
Some of our projects include:
Who We Serve
We provide all of our services to farmers and landowners within our district's boundaries. We have partnered with the Ottaqueechee NRCD to provide agricultural assistance to farmers in their district. If you are not a farmer and you reside within the Ottaqueechee district (most of Windsor county) please contact the Ottaqueechee NRCD for assistance at email@example.com
