Heritage Farm Background

The 78th Street Heritage Farm consists of 79 acres in the heart of Hazel Dell south of Northeast 78th Street and west of Northeast 25th Avenue. The farm has a rich history that dates back to the 1870s, when Clark County started operating a poor farm at the location. Washington State University established the Southwestern Washington Experiment Station on the site in 1949 and operated it until 2008. WSU continues to use the farm as the County Extension Office through an agreement with Clark County.

In 2010, Clark County adopted a master plan calling for the farm to be an accessible agricultural, educational and recreational community asset that reflects the area's history and provides a healthy, sustainable environment for future generations. More information on the Heritage Farm’s master plan is available at: www.clark.wa.gov/public-works/heritage-farm-update.

The county is in the process of updating the master plan and is seeking community input. Please take a short survey regarding the current use of the property, preferred activities and site design, and support for future improvements. The survey will take about 5 minutes to complete, and residents of all ages are encouraged to participate.

Thank you in advance for participating!
