The Siuslaw Collaborative Watershed Restoration Program is a forest stewardship collaboration between CPRC&D, the Siuslaw National Forest (SNF) and other partners to fund watershed restoration projects located in the Alsea; Hebo; Marys Peak, Siuslaw, and Smith-Umpqua-Dunes Stewardship Group areas (map). These groups are a collection of individuals and organizations
working to promote forest restoration and support local communities.
In 2002, the SNF volunteered to pilot the Forest Service's fledgling Stewardship Authorities, which now allows retained receipts from the stewardship timber sales to fund the approved watershed restoration projects in and around the SNF. Working closely with the collaborators in the Siuslaw Basin a partnership was formed by the establishment of the four stewardship groups (see left).
These Stewardship Groups meet monthly to coordinate the approved projects and discuss upcoming issues and events to further their goal of protecting the forest ecosystem of the Siuslaw basin.
