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!
Below we have chosen to highlight a few of these watersheds that’re particularly important to our community.
Hubbard Creek Watershed
This watershed is a small coastal watershed in northern Curry County that is home to the town of Port Orford. A reservoir on the mainstem of Hubbard Creek is the primary drinking water supply for Port Orford
