Providing Natural Resource Leadership Since 1952

The Yamhill Soil and Water Conservation District (District) is led by a locally elected board of directors whose responsibility is to plan and oversee the delivery of services and programs that help conserve and protect water and soil resources, wildlife habitat, and other natural resources in Yamhill County.  The District is a unit of local government, and implements its programs and services in partnership with volunteers, non-profits, state and federal agencies, school districts and universities, watershed councils, landowners, and many others. 

Please Use Caution if Using Trails at Miller Woods

if you see any obvious hazard or potential for hazardous conditions, we will appreciate knowing. Please report to Miller Woods personnel or contact or 503-472-6403.
