Benton SWCD was organized under the Oregon Soil and Water District Law ORS 568.210-780. The Certificate of Organization creating Benton SWCD was issued December 28, 1956.

Benton SWCD provides leadership at the local level. We help landowners and cooperators design and implement management plans to protect natural resources.

Benton SWCD is led by seven elected volunteer Directors: five represent geographic zones in the county, and two fill at-large positions. Other volunteers are appointed to serve as Associate Directors, contributing additional insight, expertise and energy to the board. Learn more about the Board below.
