WE HELP YOU CARE FOR YOUR LAND

Our mission at the Jefferson County

Soil and Water Conservation District is to

assist local landowners, cooperators and

the public in the wise development

and use of our natural resources.

Irrigation Efficiency & Water Management

We assist in irrigation conversion practices to promote more efficient crop yields, increase water conservation & improve water quality. We seek to find balance between agricultural needs and our region’s natural ecosystem.  

Soil Health & Loss Prevention

We can assist you with soil health projects that include cover cropping, no-till farming, increasing organic matter and water penetration to protect your soil from blowing away in our dry central Oregon climate. 

Stream

Restoration

We help develop projects that enhance the natural vegetation surrounding your stream to control soil erosion, filter excess nutrients, retain water, and improve fish & wildlife habitats.

Noxious Weed Control

A menace to public welfare, we can help with the control of harmful noxious weeds that compete with your valuable crops and damage important agricultural resources and our native ecosystems. 

WE ARE HERE TO HELP YOU.

No long-term contracts. No land enrollments. Simply grant funded opportunities to help locals like you receive the money you need to improve soil and water health on your land.
