Conservation Planning

Clatsop SWCD helps develop Conservation Plans at no cost to landowners. Conservation plans outline in detail landowner goals and concerns regarding soil, water, and other resources while providing a timeline for implementing Best Management Practices that address the landowner identified objectives. The landowner has complete control over customizing and implementing the plan and has decision making power over the activities implemented on their land (within legal guidelines).
