Mission Statement

The Walama Restoration Project (WRP) is a nonprofit organization founded in 2001, and dedicated to the restoration and enhancement of the waterways, forests, and grasslands from Oregon's Southern Willamette Valley to the Central Cascades. WRP provides a crucial community service by actively maintaining the unique and fragile ecosystems in the Southern Willamette Valley. In addition, our organization develops and implements educational outreach programs for school groups and the public to encourage local ecosystem awareness.

Description

We have cleared over 30 acres of English Ivy and Himalayan blackberry throughout city parks and have facilitated oak savanna restoration with the Nature Conservancy in the foothills of the Western Cascades. In addition to our work as restoration contractors, WRP has collaborated with the City of Eugene, the City of Eugene Stream Team Program, and two school districts on habitat-specific school projects including riparian restoration along the Willamette River, seed collection projects in upland and wetland habitats, and Oregon Oak education in South Eugene. We also collaborate with other non-profits and local watershed groups such as Friends of Hendricks Park and the McKenzie Watershed Council to facilitate programs ranging from seed collection and propagation workshops; to riparian enhancement along salmon-spawning creeks; to established in-the-field educational curriculums for two school districts.
