Please explore this site to find information about the organization, events, activities, and stories that affect our watershed in 100 Valleys of the Umpqua in Oregon.

Umpqua Watersheds envisions a land of lush mountains and river valleys that sustain an abundance of clean water, diverse wildlife, and native fish runs. These landscapes will enrich a community that values fulfilling jobs, diverse viewpoints, and the solitude of wild places.

Land Acknowledgment (Read background)

We want to respectfully acknowledge the Cow Creek Band of Umpqua Tribe of Indians (“Tribe” or “Cow Creek”), who have stewarded these lands since time immemorial.

We want to further acknowledge the Tribe’s deep cultural and spiritual connection to these lands in addition to its entire interest and ancestral areas, which includes over 6 million acres located within the Rogue and Umpqua River Watersheds. These lands and the vibrant resources within them have been important since time immemorial and will continue to be a vibrant part of Tribe’s cultural identity for generations to come.

We recognize the pre-existing and continued sovereignty of the Tribe and thank them for continuing to share their indigenous knowledge and perspective on how we might work together to manage and care for these shared resources sustainably, with mutually beneficial outcomes.

We commit to engaging in a respectful, meaningful, and successful partnerships as we explore shared stewardship of these lands.
