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, 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 SW Portland.
- 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. Watershed Resource Center staff are frequently out in the field. We look forward to meeting you!
