Interested in working for an SWCD?

SWCD Employees have a wide variety of backgrounds and work in a number of fields – from science, to agriculture, to outreach, accounting, and much more. Each SWCD is unique and works in a different area with its own set of priorities, programs, and resources. But one thing unites all of Oregon’s SWCDs – a commitment to the conservation of our natural resources, for the long-term benefit of both people and the environment.
