A rural property

Rural Living in Clackamas County

Living a rural lifestyle is a wonderful experience and will give you ample opportunity to engage in a host of activities not generally available to our city cousins. If you have a desire to raise some sheep, ride horses or plant an orchard for the next generation, you will have that chance.

While a rural lifestyle is definitely not for everyone, it has a certain appeal for many and may be a rewarding experience.

Sometimes during the quest for a rural lifestyle the focus becomes blurred toward the idyllic view of “country”. There is more involved than the scenic picture of rolling farmland. We can help you have a positive rural living experience. Our conservation specialists are available to provide technical assistance or point you in the right direction to find the answers you need. Contact the District at info@conservationdistrict.org.
