Membership and Donations
Your support of the Siuslaw Watershed Council (SWC) is key to our success. Thank you to our members and donors. Your involvement and financial support has moved our work on watershed education, monitoring, and restoration forward.
Here are a few of our accomplishments in 2012:
• Large wood structures were placed in more than 2 miles of stream, improving aquatic habitat for coho and many other species far into the future
• By removing a failed culvert, we provided access for the first time in 70 years for steelhead and cutthroat to spawning habitat in a high priority basin
• More than 150 riparian acres were planted or maintained by our SWC Restoration Crew, advancing future stream shading, filtering of nutrients, and large wood recruitment
• Over 13,000 native plants were planted by 118 riparian landowner volunteers along streams and lakes in the Siuslaw Watershed and Coastal Lakes
• We provided experiential watershed health and restoration education to more than 450 youth in the SWC Camp and through partnerships with Mapleton, Siuslaw, and other local schools
• 50 stream miles were surveyed by our SWC Restoration Crew for native river mussels and 12 sampling sites were monitored monthly by volunteers for nine water quality parameters
• Local contractors and businesses, including tree fallers, heavy equipment operators, surveyors, and nurseries have received business as a result of SWC projects
Our accomplishments listed here and many more are made possible with grant funding and your membership and donations. Your support is important to continuing our success into 2013 and beyond. Donations are deductible to the full extent of the law. We recognize that it has been a difficult few years financially for many people and we appreciate your support during these tough economic times that impact us all. Your donation is especially important as it can be used to develop projects and secure grant funding resulting in restoration, monitoring, and/or education activities.
