About Kitsap Conservation District
Kitsap Conservation District is your resource for natural resources! We offer technical assistance to landowners to help preserve our natural resources. You will find all the information you need to apply for technical assistance and grants to help you improve your property’s resource management. We are a non-regulatory organization working cooperatively with private landowners to address water and soil concerns. We collaborate with farmers, residents, and businesses to work toward conservation goals.
Ordering for the 2022 Native Plant Sale will open in mid-December of 2021!
What We Do
Ag Technical Assistance
Well-designed conservation practices increase farm productivity while protecting water quality and reducing soil erosion. We combine technical help with cost-share incentives to support good stewardship of natural resources. We partner with the Kitsap County Surface and Stormwater Management Program.
Connect the dots for wildlife by improving habitat in your yard. We may have grants available for stream restoration projects. Typical grants range from $300 to $10,000. Individual landowners, local organizations, conservation groups and others are encouraged to apply.
Rain Gardens & LID
Add beauty to your landscape while helping to cool and clean stormwater runoff. Rain gardens are landscaped depressions that collect runoff generated from impervious surfaces such as roofs, driveways, parking areas and other hard surfaces. We can provide technical assistance and up to $1000 worth of financial assistance toward rain gardens and other LID projects!
The GRACE Garden Project features a ¾-acre community garden located at the Kitsap Conservation District, with on-site demonstrations of conservation methods, low-flow irrigation design, and season extension techniques.
