Our Partners

NVSWCD works with many partners, both public and private, to achieve our vision of clean streams in Fairfax County.

Fairfax County is a close partner and strong supporter of the Conservation District.

The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) provides financial, technical and administrative support to conservation districts.

The Virginia Association of Soil and Water Conservation Districts (VASWCD) supports the missions of Virginia's 47 conservation districts by providing leadership and training, improving communication and providing cohesive representation to legislative bodies on natural resources issues.

The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) is the national voice of America's 3,000 local conservation districts.

The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality (CBLA) provides staff support for implementing the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act. At the heart of the Bay Act is the idea that land can be used and developed in ways that minimize impact on water quality.

The Lake Barcroft Watershed Improvement District is a Virginia government agency, with boundaries coincident with the Lake Barcroft community, devoted to conservation and environmental responsibilities.

WID operations are overseen by an appointed Board of Trustees along with the WID staff, consultants, and contractors. The Lake Barcroft WID is governed by the Northern Virginia Soil and Water Conservations District. Learn more about the Lake Barcroft WID.
