Editors Note: Posted from a Press Release – Readers should look closely at the information and opportunity.
Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a local, public organization that helps Washington County residents care for their land and water. We do this by providing technical advice and education on how to address issues like soil erosion, invasive weeds, and wildfire preparedness. In addition to providing technical advice, we provide financial assistance through grants and other means. These funds are put to use in many ways, including planting trees along streams to improve water quality, purchasing farm equipment to loan to residents, sponsoring educational programs to support the next generation of land stewards, and so much more.
As a rapidly growing organization, we depend on the voices of our community to help guide our work. In the upcoming November election, residents will have an opportunity to make their voices heard by running for a Tualatin SWCD Board of Directors position. Four of the seven board positions are up for election on the November ballot.
While conservation is core to our mission, Tualatin SWCD is strengthened when board members bring expertise in a variety of fields, such as community organizing, outreach, education, financial and business management, human resources, public service, agriculture, environmental sciences, and more.
Time is of the essence! In order to make it on the November ballot, residents must submit their forms by August 30, 2022.
