About Us

Since 1955, the Lincoln Soil and Water Conservation District (LSWCD) has worked to enhance and protect soil, water, and other natural resources related to agricultural, forested, urban and rural lands across Lincoln County, Oregon. By building diverse coalitions of stakeholders and partners, providing high-quality education and technical assistance, as well as designing and implementing conservation and enhancement projects on working lands, the District delivers science-based solutions to manage, protect, and improve natural resources for current and future generations. Our conservation goals are based on guidelines set forth in the Mid-Coast Agricultural Water Quality Area Plan (as administered by the Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA)), the Oregon Department of Environmental Quality’s (DEQ) Nonpoint Source Pollution Reduction Program, and the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds. 


Located in Newport, Oregon, LSWCD works to understand and meet the evolving environmental challenges and community needs of the mid-coast region - from sandy beach towns, to rich agricultural valleys, to salmon bearing waterways, and productive timberlands. LSWCD, like the other 44 soil and water conservation districts across the State, is a non-regulatory government agency established by the State Legislature for the purpose of supporting renewable natural resources in cooperation with private landowners. District financial resources are provided primarily through competitive grants, inter-agency agreements, and direct service contracts.  Staff receive guidance and support from federal and State agencies and local partners, other District Staff and members of the LSWCD Board of Directors.
