Urban Watershed Mentor Program

Want to gain skills in watershed restoration? Interested in planning and implementing your own restoration project? Join the 2015 Urban Watershed Mentor Program.

West Multnomah Soil & Water Conservation District, in partnership with Tryon Creek Watershed Council, Southwest Watershed Resource Center, Tualatin River Watershed Council and the West Willamette Watershed Partnership, are launching a series of trainings directed at interested volunteers and landowners to foster the creation of knowledgeable and engaged watershed leaders.

Through a series of trainings, this program will create volunteer leaders with the ability to guide a project idea from planning to implementation. This program will utilize a mentor model to provide new volunteer leaders and landowners with community support and guidance. Interested landowners will be able to create a conservation plan for their own land along with other landowners/volunteers. The mentor model will allow trained and experienced watershed leaders and landowners to partner with new  participants  to maximize the restoration work that can be done throughout the District’s urban west Willamette Watersheds.

Required trainings in 2015 are February 7, March 7, and April 11. Registration is required.

Registration will be open in January 2015 at the following link: http://www.wmswcd.org/content.cfm/What-We-Do/Urban-Programs
