On March 14, 2015 Umpqua Watersheds had it’s 19th annual banquet to celebrate 20 years of conservation, restoration, and education in the Umpqua valley.
We received funding from the Walmart Community Grants Team and Bessie Minor Swift Foundation for our Oregon Youth Conservation Crew and Science Friday education programs.
Every 5th grader to Crater Lake National Park!!
