About the Walla Walla Basin Watershed Council
The Walla Walla Basin Watershed Council (WWBWC) is a local non-profit organization working to protect the resources of the Walla Walla Watershed in both Oregon and Washington. This is accomplished through implementing projects, assessing watershed conditions and working within a community framework. The WWBWC was recognized by Umatilla County on May 19, 1994. Initially our focus was on the Oregon portion of the watershed and collaborating with partners in Washington. Over the past 20 years our focus has broadened to encompass projects in both the Oregon and Washington portions of the watershed.
The WWBWC office is located in Milton-Freewater, OR and is governed by a diverse board of directors who provide guidance and oversight to the staff members carrying out projects, monitoring and assessments. Since 1994, the WWBWC has brought over $10 million into the Walla Walla Watershed to assess conditions, implement projects and conduct monitoring. The WWBWC has been recognized many times for its outstanding service to the watershed. In October 2006, the WWBWC was awarded the Watershed Management Council's nation Walter C. Loudermilk Award.
The WWBWC fosters education and cooperation among all parties with interests in the Walla Walla Basin Watershed. Such cooperation and education leads to efforts that improve and maintain a healthy watershed for fish, wildlife, invertebrates, plants and people.
