Discover natural resources

Healthy stream

Clackamas County is beautiful, making it a very desirable place to live, work, and recreate.

We are blessed with good soil, clean air and water, diverse plant communities, and abundant wildlife. Our moderate climate and strong natural resource base allow local farms, nurseries, and forests to be among the most productive in the nation.

However, our renewable natural resources can be overused, misused, or destroyed. Learning about our natural resources is the first step toward using them more responsibly, today and for future generations.
