Welcome to the Siuslaw Watershed Council!

The Siuslaw Watershed Council, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, provides an opportunity for local people to plan and participate in the restoration of their watershed.

Watershed councils are volunteer driven organizations that develop and participate in community efforts to restore and protect watershed health, water quality and native fish populations. Every council is unique, and each council reflects the interests and land ownership patterns in their watershed. Councils are not governmental organizations and are not regulatory.

Anyone can participate in the Council! We help landowners fund and carry out protection and restoration efforts on their land. We form partnerships with industries and agencies to implement important research and restoration efforts. We provide educational opportunities for the Council and the community. If you are interested in watershed health, get involved! COUNCIL MEMBERS MAKE IT HAPPEN!

General Meeting – Open to the Public – March 28

Siuslaw Watershed Council General Meeting, March 28, 6:30 PM: 

Restoring Oregon's Dunes”


The Siuslaw Watershed Council’s General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, March 28, at the Council office conference room. “Restoring Oregon’s Dunes, a Bid to Save a National Treasure”, will be presented by Mick Mueller, Forest Environmental Coordinator, Siuslaw National Forest.


The Central Coast Ranger District of the Siuslaw National Forest and the Oregon Dunes Restoration Collaborative have been working together on a strategy to restore ecological processes on the Oregon Dunes National Recreation Area. As the Forest Service and the Collaborative identified the purpose and need for goals and objectives and a long term strategy necessary to save and maintain the dunes, some proposed actions became evident to foster that effort. Now the Dunes Restoration Project has been formulated with proposed actions to treat and remove non-native plant species, physically remove impediments and encourage open sand movement, restore and enhance habitat for listed endangered, threatened or other species at risk and enhance recreation experiences at the dunes.


This presentation will describe some of the history and ecological processes of the dunes, the need for restoration, the current project proposals and the timeline and opportunity to be involved in the analysis, decision and implementation of the proposed project. There will also be report by the Board and Executive Director. Come out and support your watershed Council!
