We have biocontrols available for invasive weed species like knapweed and toadflax. Invasives in Douglas County can cause loss of wildlife habitat, biodiversity, and increased costs to the agricultural community.
Access our Biocontrols Page or contact Ryan Lefler at email@example.com for more information.
Key Conservation Activities like crop rotation, prescribed grazing, native plant restoration, Vence (virtual fencing), and other practices are supported under VSP.
Vence is a virtual fencing, livestock management system for cattle that allows ranchers to control cattle movement and create customized grazing patterns.
FCCD is in the process of creating a Watershed Plan for Water Resource Inventory Area (WRIA) 50 which encompasses approximately 578,182 acres across Douglas and Okanogan counties.
Primary land use within WRIA 50 includes range (64%) and agriculture (24%).
The Watershed Plan is advisory (non-regulatory) and will identify areas of concern, priority areas for conservation, and ways to monitor water quantity and quality.
