Oregon Watershed Sustainability. Advancement. Conservation.

Our Mission Statement:

"The PRWC mission is to provide voluntary collaborative opportunities for local private citizens and interested stakeholder groups to cooperate in protecting, restoring, improving and sustaining the health of the watershed. The council encourages community engagement in planning and implementing restoration activities."


Who We Are?

The council is a group of diverse people who are committed to public collaboration for natural resource conservation efforts. The council’s main roles are to provide a place for public participation, and to serve as a medium for communication between the civil, governmental and private sectors. The council aims to help citizens be informed about the watershed’s current conditions and plans for its use and management.

Get involved in the Pudding River Watershed Council to make your opinions about our watershed enhancement be heard.
