Voluntary Stewardship Program: Going Strong!

With the approval of the Walla Walla VSP Work Plan in November 2017, the District is moving forward on implementing the plan. VSP is a voluntary alternative to regulation under the Critical Areas Ordinance.  The new Work Plan sets forth a process to demonstrate that the critical areas on ag. ground are already being protected through voluntary conservation measures.  These are things most farmers and ranchers are currently doing, like no-till and protecting riparian buffers. Progress is reported at 5-year intervals. And the stakes are high: if we can’t demonstrate that area farmers and ranchers are protecting critical areas, then ag. will be regulated under the strict requirements of the Critical Areas Ordinance. To learn more, contact the District office and check out the VSP webpage here.
