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

Medford City Hall, Lausmann Annex, Conference Room 151
Presentation: “Upcoming Changes to Watershed Councils in Oregon”
Presenter: Frances Oyung, Bear Creek Watershed Council Coordinator, Rogue Basin Coordinating Council President
The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) is the primary funding source for watershed councils in Oregon. OWEB is now proposing significant changes to how it will fund watershed councils and this will have a profound effect on councils and their sustainability and ability to serve as agents of restoration in Oregon. The speaker will address how the proposal is being addressed by watershed councils in the Rogue basin and how it may affect the Bear Creek Watershed Council.
