Our Mission

The North Coast Watershed Association (NCWA) is a non-profit organization made up of diverse stakeholders from the community who coordinate, fund, and link watershed councils to community-based efforts to improve watershed health on the north coast of Oregon and in the Columbia River estuary. The North Coast Watershed Association knows healthy watersheds sustain healthy communities.

The North Coast Watershed Association is a coordinating council of four watersheds in the northwest corner of Oregon: Nicolai-Wickiup, Youngs Bay, Skipanon and Ecola Creek

Each watershed council is made up of local citizens. Watershed councils work to implement the Oregon Plan by restoring habitat for fish and wildlife while providing jobs and education to local citizens.
