Adams Conservation District is a non-regulatory, not for profit organization dedicated to the education and promotion of natural resource conservation. We provide financial and technical support to help local landowners/operators implement better management practices. Our goal is to work together with local residents and partner agencies to protect the natural resources that sustain us all. Often times management practices can be modified to improve the quality and quantity of resources, as well as enhance operation. By sharing our experience and knowledge with each other, we can preserve the beautifully unique county we live in.

ACD History

The Ritzville Conservation District was formed on 11/23/1951; the “Benge-Washtucna” District was formed on 11/25/1952.  These two agencies consolidated into the Adams SWCD in 1963.  The Lind area was annexed in 1964.  In 1966 “8 townships” along the western edge of the county transferred to the Warden CD in anticipation of the arrival of the East High Canal in the Columbia Basin Project.  In early 2000 Lincoln County released more Adams County lands to the current Adams CD region following a Lincoln County assessment providing the Adams Conservation District with approximately 900,000 acres of conservation responsibilities out of the total 1,219,665 Adams County Acres.
