Learn more about how the District plans to address this resource concern in the Long-Range Business Plan for 2011-2015 (pdf file).
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. Through conservation education, people develop the skills necessary to understand the complexities of natural resource problems.
The District identified seven natural resource concerns within Washington County: water quality, water quantity, soil health and erosion, invasive and noxious plant species, threatened species and upland habitat enhancement, energy conservation and greenhouse gas reduction, and air quality. Each resource concern presents an opportunity for conservation education.
The Tualatin SWCD makes an effort to attend community events and organization meetings to provide conservation information. Information is provided as a display or presentation. The SWCD also hosts various workshops related to resource concern issues.
For workshops and other upcoming events, please visit our calendar.
