Watershed Health

The Westside Watershed Resource Center inspires awareness and action on behalf of watershed health in Southwest and Northwest Portland, through a partnership between Neighbors West Northwest and the City of Portland Bureau of Environmental Services.

We accomplish this by:

  • Providing residents with technical information and referrals for invasive plant removal, native plant landscaping, stormwater management, natural gardening and other practices that enhance the health of local watersheds. We can schedule a FREE site visit with you to answer questions or help plan a project!

  • Leveraging neighborhood partnerships in watershed health to seek grant funding and develop cost-effective watershed restoration projects.
