About the North Santiam Watershed Council

The Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds

The Ore­gon Plan

The North San­tiam Water­shed Coun­cil is a group of com­mu­nity vol­un­teers who act together to help restore the North San­tiam Water­shed so that it can sup­port the nat­ural habi­tat impor­tant to endan­gered salmon and steel­head fish and sup­port the econ­omy and qual­ity of life of our communities.

Water­shed Coun­cils play impor­tant roles in imple­ment­ing habi­tat restora­tion and other projects for the Ore­gon Plan for Salmon and Water­sheds.

Our Goals

  • Pro­mot­ing aware­ness and edu­ca­tion about water­shed issues
  • Pre­serv­ing and/or improv­ing water qual­ity and quan­tity in the river and stream networks
  • Main­tain­ing healthy, well-functioning nat­ural and human com­mu­ni­ties within the watershed
  • Pro­tect­ing nat­ural areas includ­ing wildlife habi­tat and biodiversity
  • Rec­og­niz­ing the social and eco­nomic ben­e­fits in pro­tect­ing the health of the watershed

The North San­tiam Water­shed Coun­cil is a place to work together in a non-regulatory set­ting to achieve the goal of healthy water, healthy nat­ural resources and healthy, eco­nom­i­cally vibrant communities.

The coun­cil was formed in 1995 and was rec­og­nized by the Mar­ion and Linn County Com­mis­sion­ers in 1998.

Fre­quently asked ques­tions about the North San­tiam Water­shed Coun­cil and our habi­tat restora­tion projects.
