Coming Soon to Clackamas County: New 1400-Acre Eagle Creek Community Forest


OREGON, Clackamas SWCD – According to Clackamas Soil and Water Conservation District General Manager Tom Salzer, purchasing the three parcels, which total 319 acres, meets the organization’s mission of helping people use natural resources sustainably. Working with Bugni and the Trust for Public Land, the District sought a grant from the U.S. Forest Service’s Community Forest Program to help cover the cost. Last October, the team learned they had won the grant, one of only a handful of such donations given nationwide last year…The result will be a 1400-acre natural area known as Eagle Creek Community Forest.
