The Windham County Natural Resources Conservation District (WCNRCD) helps landowners and users, agricultural producers, and communities throughout Windham County, Vermont conserve land and water by providing services such as: technical assistance, education and outreach, workshops and financial assistance. Founded in 1946, we are one of 14 conservation districts in the state of Vermont. The WCNRCD receives a limited amount of base funding from the state, and relies mostly on grants, workshops and individual donations to undertake its work.
The Windham County NRCD is located in the USDA Service Center office in Brattleboro, which houses several agencies that work with agricultural and rural communities. We frequently collaborate with these agencies, as well as a host of other agricultural and conservation focused organizations throughout Vermont.
