We help landowners with weed control and fish and wildlife habitat projects

The North San­tiam Water­shed Coun­cil is a locally orga­nized, vol­un­tary, non-regulatory orga­ni­za­tion that was formed in 1995 in a grass­roots effort to improve ecosys­tem and com­mu­nity health. The goals of the North San­tiam Water­shed Coun­cil are to:

  •  Pro­mote aware­ness and edu­ca­tion about water­shed issues
  •  Pre­serve or improve water qual­ity and quantity
  •  Main­tain healthy, well-functioning nat­ural and human com­mu­ni­ties within the watershed
  •  Pro­tect nat­ural areas includ­ing wildlife habi­tat and biodiversity
  •  Rec­og­nize the social and eco­nomic ben­e­fits of pro­tect­ing the health of the watershed

In order to carry out these goals, the coun­cil helps landown­ers to iden­tify habi­tat prob­lems and then tackle those prob­lems by plan­ning, fund­ing, and devel­op­ing restora­tion projects. Many of these projects include nox­ious weed removal, restor­ing fish habi­tat in streams, and reha­bil­i­tat­ing erod­ing stream banks that impact water quality. 

If you are inter­ested in receiv­ing infor­ma­tion about nox­ious weed con­trol, fish pas­sage bar­rier removal, bank sta­bi­liza­tion, restor­ing wet­land, in-stream and/or ripar­ian habi­tats or just want to learn more about the water­shed please con­tact us.  We are here to assist you!
