Our natural resources are the most precious assets in Ferry County. In our aim to provide substantial research based information, WSU has developed an entire website devoted to WATER.

**Ferry County Spring Conservation Fair  – The highlight of Ferry County Pride Month! Typically the third Saturday of April. Learn about the natural resources of our county. Educational workshops, displays and a great deal of useful information can be found at the Conservation Fair. An educational AND fun day for families! More info.

Thirsty for solutions? There’s a new guide in town to help water utilities tackle drought. EPA’s Drought Response and Recovery Guide.
