Watersheds come in all shapes and sizes. Being that we have nearly 100 miles of coastline in Curry County, and mountains jutting up against a large portion of that, we have a number of smaller streams that don’t have far to travel from their headwaters in the hills and mountains to their mouths at the Pacific Ocean.
While these watersheds aren’t as large as the more well known rivers in our region, they’re still important. They provide a myriad of diverse habitats for a large variety of species, and some are vitally important to the health and well being of the people of Curry County. You might be lucky enough to be living in one of these smaller watersheds!
The Port Orford Watershed Council is a group of community volunteers working for over 25 years to protect habitat and drinking water in the Hubbard Creek watershed.
The Port Orford Watershed Council works to:
- Connect the City of Port Orford and private landowners with state agencies and nonprofits.
- Contribute local knowledge and care of our area to leverage the skills of professionals in restoration and conservation projects.
- Remove invasive weeds and plant native trees in our watershed.
