Students at an Urban Watershed Mentor training

The Conservation District regularly holds workshops on topics relating to watershed health, forest management, landscaping with native plants, oak and streamside habitats, pasture/mud & manure management, pollinators and birds, and invasive weeds. Workshop topics change often so be sure to check our calendar often!

Our annual workshops include:

Weed Watcher Training (held in the spring)

Soil School (held in April)

Urban Watershed Mentor Training (held in the spring)

Stormwater Challenge Workshops (held in the fall)

We also have a wide variety of publications, booklets, brochures, guides, videos and other items covering all of our program areas. You’ll find them listed in the Library//Resources section of our website.

If you are a part of a Homeowners or Neighborhood Association and would like to schedule a speaker for your group of 15 people or more, contact Communications & Outreach Manager, Renee Magyar at 503.238.4775, ext. 101 or email at

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, reasonable accommodations will be made for access to all workshops with advance notice by calling West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District at (503) 238-4775, ext. 100.
