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!
