Partner assistance

The Clackamas County Soil and Water Conservation District is pleased to provide support to deserving partner organizations. By providing financial and technical support, we are able to leverage the good work of these partners to help accomplish our mission, with minimal duplication of effort.

Currently, our partner assistance program supports farmers markets and watershed councils.

Successful farmers markets mean local farmers can help keep productive soils well managed and available for agricultural production. When farms aren’t profitable, the quality of land management declines. Profitable farms are better able to conserve water and soil resources and maintain healthy habitat.

When it comes to administrative costs, watershed councils are typically underfunded, but we know successful projects can’t happen without administration. We actively partner with a number of our local watershed councils, providing limited financial assistance to help them leverage grant dollars and meet basic expenses. Their work benefits water quality and wildlife habitat.
