Welcome to the MidCoast Watersheds Council

The MidCoast Watersheds Council is a local non-profit organization dedicated to improving the health of streams and watersheds of Oregonís central coast so they produce clean water, rebuild healthy salmon populations, and support a healthy ecosystem and economy. The Council works in an area of nearly one million acres, including all streams draining from the crest of the Coast Range to the Pacific, from the Salmon River to Cape Creek at Heceta Head. This area includes the watersheds of the Salmon, Siletz, Yaquina, Alsea, and Yachats rivers, and more than 28 smaller ocean tributaries.


On January 2, 2014, the MidCoasts Watershed Council hosts Meg Gardner of the King Tide project and Janet Webster of the Oregon Community Foundation.  Photos taken this year at king tides help establish a photo record of the same places year after year. If you are a photographer, your skill would be welcome.

The Council meets the first Thursday of each month, at 6:30 PM, at the Central Lincoln PUD in Newport. The PUD is located at 2129 North Coast Highway in Newport, across the highway from Safeway.  The meetings are open to the the public.
