Volunteering

Why Volunteer?

With the complex environmental issues that impact our watersheds, we need collaborative ecological restoration.

We need “all hands on deck” to help preserve Oregon’s precious freshwater resources and fisheries for many generations to come. There are many fun ways to get involved with the PRWC!

We are always looking for families, individuals, school groups, businesses, etc. to come help out with projects!

Why Serve on the Board?

Pudding River Watershed Council board members serve as the organization’s leadership. Members attend monthly meetings and represent a diverse range of stakeholder interests. They collaborate with community members to brainstorm and implement new watershed stewardship projects.

We invite you to serve on the PRWC board. With your input, we can better preserve the waterways themselves, as well as the fish, wildlife, and year-round recreation opportunities. This is a wonderful opportunity to help build the effectiveness of an important community forum for the protection of our shared natural resources.
