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!

Opportunities coming soon...

will post date/time info here.


Board Service

Joining the Board


  • Stakeholder Representatives must reside or work in the Pudding River Watershed.
  • Stakeholder Representative (other than citizen-at-large representatives) will be selected by a Stakeholder Group. Where there is not an organized or identified Stakeholder Group, the Governing Board will solicit applications from interested parties.

How it Works

  • The Governing Board will solicit applications from interested parties for citizen-at-large positions
  • Interested parties should submit letters of interest directed to the PRWC Governing Board to the Council via email or mail.
  • Letters should contain contact information, skills and experience relevant to board service, and reasons for interest in serving on the PRWC Governing Board.


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.
