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!
