District History

Jackson SWCD was formed in 1966 as a result of the consolidation of the Jackson (formerly Sams Valley-Beagle) and the Rogue Soil and Water Conservation Districts. 

The district was a relatively small enterprise with primarily one staff member until, under the leadership and vision of District Manager Randy White and an engaged board, the residents of Jackson County supported a ballot measure to allocate regular funding to the district.

This leadership and support from the county allowed the district to significantly increase its capacity to support all Jackson County residents in managing their natural resources.
