Our Mission

The North Coast Watershed Association 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 and 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. 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 also providing jobs and education to the local citizens. Ideally, the restoration projects the councils pursue and implement will enrich and sustain our economy and way of life.
