Protecting the Best and Restoring the Rest since 1995.
Your support is much appreciated and needed to ensure that industries and agencies are accountable for their actions whilst providing opportunities for youth and adults to appreciate the outdoors and the wilderness.
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.
Twin Lakes, Crater Lake Hiking bonanza, and more!
July has been a month of outdoor adventure and fun! UW took 20 youth and 15 volunteers backpacking, swimming, and hiking at Twin Lakes from July 17-19. July 18 marked the annual River Appreciation Day celebration, and UW partnered with Oregon Wild July 18-24 to lead hikes around the proposed Crater Lake Wilderness Area.
Every 5th grader to Crater Lake National Park!!
We are lucky enough to have receive funding from the Gray Family Foundation to take every 5th grader in Douglas County to Crater Lake! The fall trips were inspirational and we look forward to continuing to extend this opportunity to more Douglas County 5th graders this spring!
