EMSWCD works with willing landowners and a range of public and private partners to help effect voluntary protection of important natural areas. These lands and waters help make this the beautiful place we all love to call home. The quality of life they sustain helps attract and retain businesses that can grow the local economy. Open lands, clean water and green natural landscapes not only promote health and happiness, they also provide important wildlife habitat and keep our air and water clean.
Your Natural Lands
If you own land in the District (the EMSWCD service area is all of Multnomah County east of the Willamette River) that has important wildlife habitat, contains a stream or wetland, harbors endangered plant or animal species, or is close to existing parks or other protected lands, we would like to hear from you! We may be able to help you protect these lands for future generations.
