Network of Oregon Watershed Councils
Mission: The Network supports the work of Oregon’s watershed councils to enhance watershed health and benefit their local communities.
Vision: We envision strong, resilient watershed councils throughout Oregon sustaining healthy land, water and economies. Oregon watershed councils are the pride of our local communities and a model for our country and the world.
Our Purpose: The Network of Oregon Watershed Councils is dedicated to supporting the work of watershed councils throughout the state by focusing on three principles agreed to by watershed councils statewide.
Help Build Watershed Council Capacity: through training, information sharing, funding and internal communication.
Work to improve key relationships with watershed council partners: such as OWEB, OACD, Oregon Plan Liaisons, River Network, OSU Extension and other organizations in the state.
Promote public awareness of watersheds and watershed councils developing a watershed outreach program in partnership with the Oregon Plan Team, OSU Extension, OWEB and others; publishing a Statewide Atlas of Accomplishments, establishing a Network website for both the public and watershed councils, and; coordinating communication and education for elected officials about the work of councils.
