Southwest Watershed Resource Center


SW Watershed Resource Center
located inside the SWNI office
Multnomah Arts Center, Room #5
7688 SW Capitol Hwy.


The Southwest Watershed Resource Center inspires awareness and action on behalf of watershed health in SW Portland neighborhoods, through a partnership between Southwest Neighborhoods, Inc. and the City of Portland Bureau of 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.
  • Leveraging neighborhood partnerships in watershed health to seek grant funding and develop cost-effective watershed restoration projects



Please Visit Us!

We are located inside the SWNI office, which is open Monday through Friday, 9am - 5pm. If you are planning to visit the Watershed Resource Center, please call 503-823-2862 to reserve a time for someone to assist you. Much of the Watershed Resource Center staff time is spent out in the field.  We look forward to meeting you!
