The Lewis County Conservation District can still be found on the fringes of the Mint City but they’ve got a new office to go along with reduced hours of operation.
Formerly located on Bishop Road, the Lewis County Conservation District office is now located in the Olympic Elementary School on the corner of 20th Street and Southwest Salisbury Avenue in Chehalis. The entrance is located on the 20th Street side of the building and the Conservation District employees can be found in rooms 34 and 36.
“The transition is going good. We just do not have enough employees to be open as long as we would like,” wrote Bob Amrine of the Lewis County Conservation District in an email to The Chronicle.
The Conservation District will now be open from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., Tuesdays through Thursday. The office will be closed for thirty minutes each day beginning at 1 p.m. Assistance will be available on Mondays and Fridays by appointment only.
