About

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!

The Siuslaw Watershed Council is pleased to announce that we will again offer summer camp for students entering 4th grade through high school. This year SWC is offering one camp for all youth 4th through 12th grades on June 25th through 29th. Come be a part of exploring the Siuslaw watershed's many rivers, streams, and lakes.

During the camp we travel throughout the Siuslaw region learning about plants, animals, water and land. We focus on the restoration work that is being done to keep our watershed healthy. Campers will get a chance to make a difference by doing hands-on restoration work. We also highlight some of the unique recreation opportunities in our area such as stand-up paddleboarding, canoeing, sandboarding and much more!

Camp is $75 for the whole session from June 25th through 29th and scholarships are available!

Registration packets are available on our website at http://www.siuslaw.org/camps/

You may also contact our office at 541-268-3044 to request a packet.

Siuslaw Watershed Camp is made possible with funding from The Ford Family Foundation, Western Lane Community Foundation, Mapleton Community Foundation, in partnership with Siuslaw School District, and through private donations.

We hope that your child can join us this summer as we explore the lakes, forests, and streams of the Siuslaw and Coastal Lakes Watersheds.
