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!
