Who We Are

We are a 501(c)(3) organization that helps watershed residents work together to improve the health of the Coos Watershed. These efforts are rooted in science and driven by the belief that balance between economic and environmental interests is possible.

What We Do

The Coos Watershed Association creates a local, non-governmental network and funding resource so that landowners can easily communicate their issues and opportunities, and explore ideas and techniques for land management and watershed health.

What You Can Do

The Coos Watershed Association accepts donations in multiple forms. You can even donate your time. Every donation you make, big or small, strengthens our watershed by supporting community based education, monitoring, and restoration efforts.
