Sherman County SWCD Mission Statement

The Sherman County Soil and Water Conservation District strives to promote and protect the natural resources of not only Sherman County, but the areas included in our watershed drainage's. 

The board of directors believes that cooperation between the State of Oregon, Federal agencies, public interest groups and land owners/operators is of the utmost importance in achieving the goals of the district. 

We will continue to work for not only better soil and water conservation practices, but also for a better understanding between all parties concerned with the protection of our natural resources.
