welcome to the middle fork willamette watershed council
Our mission: To work together as a community to restore and sustain the ecological integrity and economic viability of the watershed.
One of the highest priority areas for restoration in the Middle Fork Willamette Watershed lies at the confluence of Lost Creek and the Middle Fork Willamette River in Elijah Bristow State Park. This 30-acre deforested area is part of a historical floodplain forest. In December of 2007, the MFWWC began the final phase of a multi-phased project to restore the area. The project involved extensive weed removal, planting of 4,500 native trees, the installation of an innovative solar-powered irrigation system, and western pond turtle and red-legged frog monitoring.
