Letters | Conservation district needs your support

As landowners of a forested parcel in King County, my wife and I have experienced first-hand the benefits provided by the landowner assistance programs offered through the King Conservation District.

In early 2012 with the help of King CD’s Landowner Incentive Program (LIP), we able to hire a forestry contractor to remove invasive weeds and plant 1,200-plus conifers on our property in the Duvall area. Not only does this benefit our property, but it also helps to promote better water quality now and into the future for the Snoqualmie Valley. I feel very fortunate to live in such a beautiful and natural resource-rich area as the Snoqualmie Valley, and hope the efforts and actions being done today through the King CD will continue into the future. We want future generations to experience the natural beauty we see today!

We know King CD is also involved in many other important projects throughout King County encompassing farms, forests, and wetland areas. These projects often directly benefit many vital and important waterways. King CD has been doing this work for more than 60 years and it needs to remain funded so it can continue this vital work into the future!

Please do whatever you can to help support current and future funding at King CD!
