Ferry Conservation District really is your conservation district. We encourage public input and are happy to answer any questions you may have.
With a population of approximately 7,200 people and a land area of 2,204 square miles, Ferry County has the lowest population density in the State of Washington. Large tracts of national forest in the northern half of the district, along with the Colville Indian Reservation to the south, limit the amount of privately owned land to 15%.
Ferry County has a short growing season and is lacking in areas with highly productive soils. This fact, along with a terrain of rugged forest, limits most agricultural production to the raising of livestock.
