Is my property eligible for a site visit?

Schools, governments, and other public properties are automatically eligible for a site visit. Due to high demand, however, we are only able to offer in-person site visits to the following private properties:

  • Rural, working, and agricultural lands such as farms, nurseries, and woodlots.
  • Properties within 300 feet of a stream, river, or wetland, and/or a “high conservation value” natural area (as determined by EMSWCD staff)
  • Low-income multifamily housing units within Portland’s Urban Growth Boundary
  • Properties within Gresham’s Downspout Disconnection zone, for stormwater management assistance only
