Southwest Watershed Resource Center

Southwest Watershed Resource Center logoThe Southwest Watershed Resource Center (WRC) inspires awareness and action on behalf of watershed health in southwest Portland neighborhoods through a partnership between Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. and Environmental Services.

We accomplish this by:

  • providing residents with technical information and referrals for invasive plant removal and native plant landscaping, stormwater management, natural gardening and other practices that enhance the health of local watersheds
  • supporting volunteer stewardship groups in Fanno Creek, Tryon Creek, Stephens Creek, and other Willamette subwatersheds within southwest Portland
  • leveraging neighborhood partnerships in watershed health to seek grant funding and develop cost-effective watershed restoration projects
