What can you do to help support conservation actions that help make our communities strong, healthy places to live and work?
Talk to others
Talking with people you know about about soil, water, wildlife, and other natural resources is very helpful. Talking about conservation raises interest, and that’s the first step in learning why conserving natural resources is so important.
We can come talk to your group. We’ve presented to Scouts, farm associations, community planning organizations, and church groups. If you’d like information about your area and the help we may be able to provide, contact us.
We use volunteers to help with office work, monitoring sites, workshops, events, etc. Our partners also need volunteers, and we’ll be happy to help guide you to them.
Donations of money, materials, or land to governmental entities may be tax deductible. According to the Internal Revenue Service: “Charitable contributions to governmental units are tax-deductible under section 170(c)(1) of the Internal Revenue Code if made for a public purpose.”
The Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District would like to increase conservation effectiveness by establishing demonstration sites. A long-term goal is to create a local conservation education center!
Implement conservation practices
The very best way to support conservation is to use conservation practices at your home and business! Visit our section covering Resources you manage for more information.
