Issaquah-area residents can apply to be a supervisor for the King Conservation District, the group responsible for promoting sustainable use of natural resources, and providing information and technical assistance to landowners.

The volunteer board of supervisors — including three elected members and two supervisors appointed by the state Conservation Commission — oversees the district. The board handles the district’s budget and programs, and provides guidance to staff members.

The three-year position is open to registered voters inside the conservation district. In addition to Issaquah, the district includes all of King County except for Enumclaw, Federal Way, Milton, Pacific and Skykomish.

Find applications for the open seat at the conservation district and the commission. Candidates must apply by Nov. 15. The commission plans to announce the appointment Dec. 2. Contact Susan Wermus at 282-1900 to learn more.

The appointee succeeds retiring member Scott Wallace, a longtime leader in local agricultural programs.
