Upcoming CPO Meetings 

Join CPO 15 at their next meeting:

Wed., Oct. 23, 7 p.m.

On the agenda:

  • Tualatin Soil and Water Conservation District
    Presentation by Nicole Ruggiero, Rural Program Specialist, and Juli Waarvik, Outreach Specialist. Learn how the District works with private landowners to meet conservation goals on their properties. It provides guidance and financial assistance to landowners who wish to implement some conservation practices, such as stream-side tree planting or pollinator hedge rows. Many residents of Blooming and Fern Hill are already working with the District. Come find out how CPO 15 neighbors can all work together to conserve the beautiful rural areas in Blooming and Fern Hill!
