Native Plant Distribution

Siuslaw Watershed Council's 20th Annual Plant Giveaway!

Since 2000, the Siuslaw Watershed Council has given away thousands of free native plants every year to riparian landowners throughout the Siuslaw and Coastal Lakes Watersheds to promote water quality, salmon habitat and healthier streams! If you have a creek flowing through your property, or live along one of our scenic lakes, you may be eligible to receive free native plants from the Watershed Council to help support water quality and fish habitat in your own backyard!

River, and lakeside landowners may be eligible to receive free native plants from us this year, free of charge! Native plants growing along streams help reduce erosion, filter nutrients, and keep the water cool for salmon, trout and other aquatic species. Native plants are adapted to specific site conditions; we have some resources available to help you identify which plants will thrive alongside your backyard creek or lake! Siuslaw Watershed Council staff can also help advise you on plant selection and placement. You can download our informational brochure below:


After you've made your choice for what native plants will thrive alongside your creek or lake, please fill out the order form below:
