Welcome to the Upper Nehalem Valley
What is a watershed? It is an area of land over which water flows to join rivers, lakes, or seas. The health of the watershed is important and impacts our water, our wildlife, and our communities.
The Upper Nehalem Watershed Council works to foster stewardship and understanding of the natural resources of the Upper Nehalem Watershed among the stakeholders of the watershed communities in order to protect, conserve, restore and sustain the health and functions of the watershed.
Become a Volunteer Today
Volunteers are the backbone of the UNWC. From planting trees and tending native plants in the nursery to serving as a board member, our volunteers make it happen. And volunteerism doesn’t just benefit the organization, it also enriches the life of the volunteer through social interactions, project collaborations, and personal education and growth.
