Education & Outreach

One of the main goals of the Upper Willamette SWCD is to provide education and outreach to the constituents of the Upper Willamette SWCD. The district works to provide updated education by conducting landowner/producer workshops, providing presentations by request, and conducting one-on-one site evaluations to landowners. Outreach is provided through newsletters, printed articles and staffing informational booths at local events.
