Voluntary Stewardship Program plans community workshop, March 22 in Bridgeport and Mansfield

DOUGLAS COUNTY - Are you an agricultural operator in Douglas County? If so, then the Voluntary Stewardship Program involves you!  Like many other counties in Washington, Douglas County opted to take this voluntary, watershed scale approach as an alternative to the regulations of the Growth Management Act.

As the lead agency for the Voluntary Stewardship Program (VSP), Foster Creek Conservation District will be hosting a series of community outreach workshops throughout Douglas County in March.  Foster Creek staff will be on hand to answer your questions and show you how easy it is to participate in VSP – there’s no sign-up or cost to you.   Anyone from the agricultural community is invited to attend to learn how VSP will help eliminate the need for future additional agricultural regulations.

There are two meetings Tuesday March 22. The first is from 10-11:30 a.m. in Bridgeport at City Hall on 1206 Columbia Ave. The next meeting is from 2-3:30 p.m. at Town Bar and Grill in Mansfield on 34 Main St.

For more information visit the Foster Creek Conservation District website at www.fostercreekcd.org and click on the Voluntary Stewardship Plan tab under Programs or give Foster Creek staff a call on 509-888-6372.

Foster Creek staff look forward to seeing you at one of these meetings.
