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.

NEXT SPEAKER at Bear Creek Watershed Council General Meeting
Monday, December 9, 2013, 8:30 am
Medford City Hall, Lausmann Annex, Conference Room 151
Presentation: “Report on Recent Water Quality Monitoring
In the Whetstone Creek Watershed”
Jack Blackham, Southern Oregon University, Student, Lead Field Tech
Robert Coffan, Southern Oregon University, Adjunct Professor, President, Katalyst, Inc.
The Whetstone watershed receives most of its flow inputs from industrial, agricultural, and urban land uses, and there is community interest in restoration opportunities in the subbasin. The presentation will provide an in-progress summary of the first year of baseline data collection of the Whetstone Creek Monitoring Project. Water quality results and flow monitoring from six summer sites and two wet season sites provide insight on the behavior of this Rogue River tributary.
