Our Work

Our projects and programs span throughout the Tualatin River watershed with five goals guiding our work. We work with other organizations, NGOs, municipalities, community members, and local government to improve water quality for everyone that calls this watershed home.

Goal 1: The Tualatin River watershed will become cleaner and healthier in order to meet the needs of current and future generations of fish, wildlife, and people.

Goal 2: The community will increasingly value a clean and healthy Tualatin River watershed.

Goal 3: The community will have increased opportunities to enjoy and explore the Tualatin River watershed.

Goal 4: The community will increasingly take advantage of opportunities to actively steward the Tualatin River watershed.

Goal 5: Public policy and its implementation will increasingly promote a healthy Tualatin River watershed and community engagement with the watershed.
