How we work with you
We work cooperatively with private landowners to conserve natural resources. We help landowners and local community partners sustain our soil, water, land, air and energy resources.
We also help people become better stewards of the natural resources they control. The District’s project work focuses on making the county a place where our communities, environments and economy thrive together.
If conserving our vital natural resources is important to you, and you like our non-regulatory, collaborative approach to helping people, get involved!
In 1939, the Oregon Legislature passed enabling legislation to establish conservation districts in Oregon. Conservation districts were charged with directing programs to protect local, renewable natural resources.
