Welcome Heather Hendrixson to the Hood River SWCD

OREGON, Hood River SWCD — With both District Manager Jordan Kim and Financial Manager Anne Saxby stepping down from their respective positions at the Hood River Soil and Water Conservation District (HR-SWCD), Heather Hendrixson has assumed the role of district manager, which has been restructured to include both Kim and Saxby’s duties.

She joins the conservation district after 15 years working in Klamath Falls, 12 of those as the Klamath Basin Program Manager for the Nature Conservancy.

“I’m just super excited to be here too, just in a different geography and a smaller basin than the Klamath, and just a different set of resource issues,” Hendrixson said.

One of 45 soil and water conservation districts in Oregon, the HR-SWCD helps landowners, managers and residents with practices and techniques to protect national resources. It also runs the Hood River Watershed Group, a local forum dedicated to sustaining and improving Hood River’s watershed.
