The board asked me to be their ear to happenings at this watershed council. I attend monthly meetings and occasional other special meetings for this watershed council and report back what is gong on or planned to the DCLA at our monthly member meetings. PURs has a diverse representation of interest groups each having a chairperson (and vote) at each meeting. PURs mission through collaboration with these diverse participants is to maintain and improve fish populations and water quality from source to sea in streams of the Umpqua. The watershed council has a very information rich web site that folks should visit if they have interest of feel free to give me a call or e-mail with questions.
