The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
To restore and protect the natural, cultural, and historical resources of the Sandy River Basin Watershed.
The Sandy River Basin Watershed Council is composed of people who live, work or recreate in the Sandy River Basin as well as organizations that have an interest in the area. The watershed council is a partnership: individuals and organizations work cooperatively to improve the health of the watershed for fish, wildlife and people. We coordinate our efforts with many private and public sector partners to produce the greatest benefits for the watershed.
Founded by local residents in 1997, the watershed council is an independent, non-profit corporation. We believe that cooperative efforts and relationships will produce lasting benefits for everyone involved. Our habitat restoration projects and basic operations are funded by grants, matching funds from partners and contributions from community members.
