The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board has approved seven grants that will permanently protect some of Oregon’s most important farm and ranch lands.

The awards are the first round of funding from the Oregon Agricultural Heritage Program which protects Oregon’s farm and ranch lands from fragmentation and conversion.
