The Luckiamute Watershed Council (LWC) is a diverse group of volunteers who work together to learn about the watershed and to improve water quality and habitat conditions. The LWC promotes projects that protect and enhance natural resources through the cooperation and support of local agencies, schools, landowners, industries and businesses.
Formed in 2001, the LWC has a 13-member Board of Directors. The Council is representative of the stakeholders in the watershed and includes people with experience in fisheries, agriculture, forestry, education, and natural resource management. Anyone who lives or works in the Luckiamute River or Ash Creek watersheds is welcome to attend LWC meetings or participate in watershed activities.
