The Curry Watersheds Partnership exists to recognize the conservation and restoration efforts of a few local organizations. For over 20 years the Curry Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), the Lower Rogue Watershed Council (LRWC), and the South Coast Watershed Council (SCWC) have worked together to assist landowners with resource concerns while incorporating habitat enhancements into their projects.
A watershed is the area of land where all precipitation drains to a common water body, such as a river or lake. Watersheds are not made of water, but of land. It is a watershed that connects us all to the resources that we depend on for our survival.
No matter where you stand, a watershed surrounds you!
While most of our projects target improvements to salmon habitat quality and access, such as large wood placements, restoration of riparian areas, and fish passage culverts, we also have programs that target noxious weeds control, water quality, local food production and early learners with our outdoor education program.
We are located in the heart of what is called “America’s Wild Rivers Coast
,” 101 miles of Pacific coastline and old-growth forests. This coast is home to five National Wild & Scenic Rivers, four of which flow through the Curry Watersheds Partnership's service area
. While the area is said to have some of the best remaining salmon habitat in the lower 48 states, there is still a need to restore, improve and create habitat that has been degraded due to historic land use.
