Rejuvenating SW Washington's Natural Spaces and Urban Places.

Mission and History

The History of the Watershed Alliance

Vancouver Watersheds Alliance was incorporated in April 2008 as a nonprofit with 501(c)(3) status. In 2010, the organization became completely independent of the City and now works on a contract basis to perform specific tasks including community outreach, environmental restoration, promoting volunteerism and care for our water resources. The Watershed Alliance also works independently with other community organizations to accomplish its mission. In 2017, we changed our name to the Watershed Alliance of SW Washington to better reflect our expanding efforts and new partnerships.

Mission: Watershed Alliance works to educate and engage community members to be active stewards of SW Washington natural legacy, with a focus on creeks, lakes, and other water bodies. We educate children and adults, while giving them hands on opportunities to participate in the restoration and protection of waterways.
