Learn About the Middle fork

The Middle Fork watershed is a unique and diverse system of geologic history, hydrology, natural environments and human communities. The rivers, forests, prairies and mountains of the area provide an abundance of natural resources important to our social and economic structures, as well as access  to clean water, outdoor recreation and wildlife habitat. The Middle Fork Willamette Watershed Council offers a variety of resources, education programs and experiences to help connect people to the watershed. Come “discover your watershed” with us!

Visit our online resource page for maps, weblinks and publications highlighting various elements, projects and partners of the Middle Fork watershed.
