Helping preserve, protect and enhance natural resources in Washington County
The Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District has been working to protect Washington County’s natural resources for more than 50 years and is a well-known, respected source of technical assistance in natural resource management.
We provide technical assistance to help private landowners install conservation practices to meet natural resource goals and their own objectives.
Part of our mission is to assess watershed conditions, identify resource concerns, and select strategies to help natural resources meet standards and all beneficial uses.
Conservation education is important to teach people of all ages, in both rural and urban areas, to appreciate the country’s natural resources and learn to conserve those resources for future generations.
We strive to make natural resources as economically viable and environmentally healthy as possible by equipping residents with knowledge, financial resources, and motivation to make the Tualatin Basin a great place to live and work.
