The mission of the Bear Creek Watershed Council is to foster collaborative efforts that maintain, protect, and restore the Bear Creek watershed - an integral part of the Rogue River Basin.
The Bear Creek Watershed Council seeks to restore cool, clean, fishable, and swimmable streams throughout the watershed. We envision all people who live in the watershed working together to protect the health of the watershed while fostering a strong economy and community.
The Bear Creek Watershed Council has partnered with local videographer/producer Ralph Bowman and the OR Dept. of Fish & Wildlife to produce a short video that will be shown locally on Southern Oregon Public Television (Channel 8 in the Rogue Valley). The video will be seen in 5 counties (Jackson, Josephine, Curry, Douglas, Klamath, and some parts of Lakeview and Siskiyou) as a filler between programs. Thanks Ralph Bowman and SOPTV!
