About Us

Curry Watersheds is a partnership of several organizations (listed below) dedicated to protecting the county’s farms, fish and forests through conservation and watershed restoration practices.

The Curry County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is a special district designated by the State of Oregon - much like a port, library or school district. Conservation districts are charged with directing programs to protect local, renewable natural resources, and the Curry SWCD has a long and proud tradition of working with local farmers and ranchers to develop and implement innovative resource conservation projects. The District also serves as employer and designated fiscal agent for the South Coast and Lower Rogue Watershed Councils .   Find out more...
 

The Lower Rogue Watershed Council is responsible for watershed restoration activities in all tributaries and the mainstem of the lower Rogue River – roughly from Illahe down to the mouth of the river at Gold Beach. Volunteer council members represent a wide cross-section of the community living and working in the Lower Rogue River. The Council’s efforts are administered by a Coordinator with the help of funding through the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.  Find out more...

The South Coast Watershed Council serves as the umbrella Council for the smaller watershed councils in the county. These councils (north to south) are:   Floras Creek/New River, Elk/Sixes Rivers, Port Orford watersheds, Euchre Creek, Hunter Creek/Pistol River, Chetco River, and Winchuck River. The all-volunteer council is made up of representatives from the smaller councils and other interested citizens. The Council’s efforts are administered by a Coordinator with the help of funding through the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board.  Find out more...

The South Coast Watersheds is the 501c3 fundraising arm for both the South Coast and Lower Rogue Watershed Councils. This formally-recognized, non-profit organization is eligible to receive foundation grants and other donations for watershed work.  All donations to South Coast Watersheds are tax-deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
