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. Schedule a FREE site visit with us to answer your questions or help you plan your next project!
Supporting volunteer stewardship groups in Fanno Creek, Tryon Creek, Stephens Creek, and other Willamette subwatersheds within Portland. Look at this Portland watersheds map to see which watershed you live in.
Leveraging neighborhood partnerships in watershed health to seek grant funding and develop cost-effective watershed restoration projects.
WHAT IS A WATERSHED?
A watershed is an area of land that drains or "sheds" rain and snowmelt into a body of water.
