Our Values

  • Education – Our goal is to provide information about the watershed characteristics, conservation opportunities and community events with in the Pudding River Watershed.
  • Inspiration – Why is a health watershed important to you as an individual or to your group? Why is conservation called the Good Work”? And, what are the benefits? Everyone is connected to a watershed. What is your connection to the Pudding?
  • Action – Get involved. Who are the leaders within the watershed and what programs, projects and opportunities for engagement are already available?

The Pudding River Watershed Council (PRWC) exists to serve public and private sector land owners as well as the entire community. Help has been available for complying with clean water act, endangered species, and other laws and codes for over 16 years. PRWC is not a government agency, but the board is volunteer group dedicated to the good of the watershed. We offer small grants of under $10,000 for land owners along our creeks that have environmental issues.

Historically significant for Native American society and the State of Oregon with uniquely urban and rural qualities, this is the place we call home. Please join us today as a board member or with a donation. Thank You!


Our Vision Statement:

“Our vision is a healthy watershed that ensures water quality, riparian and wetland habitat for fish and wildlife, and free-to-grow native plants while recognizing the importance of people’s economic livelihood and quality of life. None of us is as smart as all of us, and by working together we will build consensus and achieve more towards our mutual watershed interests.”
