The Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a subdivision of the state government, led by a locally elected board of directors who serve without pay. The district’s charge is to help conserve the land, water, plants, and wildlife resources in Yamhill County. The Yamhill SWCD directors are joined by associated directors, staff, and volunteers to carry out the district activities.
In the 53 years that Yamhill SWCD has operated in the county there have been great progress at conserving Yamhill County’s soil and water resources. Much of the district’s work involves matching governmental assistance with local conservation needs and encouraging land managers to use conservation practices. As a resident of Yamhill County or the surrounding area, you have the opportunity to participate in the Yamhill SWCD and take advantage of the many services we offer.
One of these services is access to free technical assistance. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like to schedule a site visit.
