The Columbia Slough Watershed Council is a community based organization that works to foster action to protect, enhance, restore, and revitalize the Columbia Slough and its watershed. We work to accomplish our mission through education, community involvement, and stewardship. Our vision is an urban watershed rich in clean water and healthy habitats that supports the needs of fish, wildlife, plants, and people.
The Columbia Slough Watershed Council has three main interests: education, community involvement, and stewardship. Our education program focuses on Slough School, a hands-on science classroom and field trip program for students kindergarten through high school. Community involvement includes workshops and special events, such as Explorando El Columbia Slough and the Small Boar Regatta. Through monitoring and restoration activities, we work to improve the natural areas in the watershed.
