In partnership with the Siuslaw National Forest (SNF) and others, Cascade Pacific facilitates forest stewardship through the Siuslaw Collaborative Watershed Restoration Program. A large number of partners including SNF, CPRCD, Watershed Councils, Soil & Water Conservation Districts, Tribes, non-profit groups and others collaborate on forest restoration efforts on the SNF and surrounding lands. CPRCD manages the Stewardship Fund which supports watershed restoration projects in the Alsea, Hebo, Marys Peak, and Siuslaw Stewardship areas. CPRCD is currently involved with the McKenzie Stewardship Group in efforts to implement Stewardship Contracting on the Willamette National Forest. Please visit our Stewardship website for more information.
The Pure Water Partners (PWP) Program is an initiative designed to reward McKenzie landowners who protect high quality land along the river, assisting EWEB in protecting water quality and helping to avoid future water treatment costs. PWP provides annual payments, technical assistance and/or other incentives to participating landowners. It also helps to connect landowners who wish to engage in restoration projects on their land with technical and financial assistance. Landowners with small residential lots may participate in the PWP Naturescaping Pathway. Landowners with more than an acre or two may be eligible for the PWP Protection or Restoration Pathway. Program partners include the Eugene Water & Electric Board, Cascade Pacific Resource Conservation & Development, McKenzie Watershed Council, McKenzie River Trust, Metropolitan Wastewater Management Commission, Upper Willamette Soil & Water Conservation District, University of Oregon, and the US Forest Service.
