Whats New?

  • Have you taken the VSP Producer Survey Yet? ​                        The survey helps to tell the story that agriculture can protect critical areas through voluntary conservation, and in doing so, helps you avoid further governmental regulation by assuring the VSP succeeds! The survey can be completed on paper, or online. Thank you for your time!

Are you interested in keeping new agricultural regulations out of Douglas County?


Serving as a Voluntary Stewardship Program work group member may be the answer you have been looking for !


  • The Voluntary Stewardship Program reduces the regulatory burden on the Douglas County agricultural community by protecting critical areas through voluntary conservation activities.
  • VSP work group meetings are open to the public, and interested parties are encouraged to attend a meeting or two prior to committing to be a member.
  • Volunteering as a work group member will encompass only 16 - 32 hours of your time throughout the year as meetings occur on a quarterly basis. 
  • VSP work group members are responsible for determining the direction of the program and helping it succeed.  Participating on the work group will help ensure the needs and interests of your agricultural community are met and that additional regulations are not imposed in Douglas County.
