Water goes where it wants to go. We work closely with a number of agencies and organizations to protect and enhance watershed function throughout the South Santiam basin. When we set up a project, we almost always work with partners to accomplish our goals and support watershed health across boundaries of land ownership.
We have a strong background of working successfully on both public and private lands, with an emphasis on communication, accountability, and follow-through.
