The Ottauquechee Natural Resources Conservation District, founded in 1944, helps individuals, groups and communities in eighteen towns in Windsor County, and one in Rutland County, by providing education, information and technical assistance relating to conservation issues.

The District has always been innovative in its conservation efforts. Early programs focused on agricultural needs, however, over the years, as patterns in farming have changed, District programs have changed to meet environmental needs. Today the District also gives considerable assistance to various non-agricultural agencies and groups.
