Welcome

Our mission is to provide resources, information, and expertise to inspire people to actively improve air and water quality, fish and wildlife habitat, and soil health.

We are a publicly funded special district conservation organization. We help residents of Multnomah County west of the Willamette River, all of Sauvie Island including the Columbia County portion of the Island, and a portion of the Bonny Slope region of the Tualatin Mountains in Washington County (see District map). Many of our services include invasive weed management, establishing native plants, livestock management, grant funding, wildlife habitat restoration, school gardens, and conservation planning for healthy forests, farms, streams and soil. We look forward to hearing from you!

In order to help keep people safe and healthy during the coronavirus pandemic, we have closed our office and cancelled all in-person events until further notice. District staff are working remotely during this time and can be reached by email or by leaving a voicemail message. Find contact information on the staff page. See more detailed information on our COVID-19 updates page about what services we are offering during this time.
