About This Website


The purpose of this website is to serve as an information hub for conservation districts in the Pacific Region of the National Conservation District Employees Association.

Why a turtle?

Why is a turtle the icon selected for this website? Almost all of the entities in the Pacific Region touch the Pacific Ocean, and the sea turtle emblem reflects that common association.

In native cultures, the turtle often symbolizes an association with the Earth, sometimes in the form of the earth mother. The turtle means good health and long life, determination and persistence. It is also linked to the spirit of water.

The turtle is a creature of earth and water, the two natural resources that are at the core of our work as conservation districts.
