About Directors

In Oregon, Soil and Water Conservation Districts are local units of government with elected boards of five or seven directors.

In the Clackamas SWCD, five directors are elected from specific zones (see map below or view a Google map of director zones) and two directors are elected “at large” from anywhere in the District.
