Bear Creek and Rogue Basin Watershed Riparian Planting Plan (December 2010) 
Other Natural Resources Projects


How we manage natural resources is vitally important to our region.  We all are responsible for the health of our watersheds and waterways.  Actions we take and the choices we make can impact the health and liveability of our region.

Natural Resources (established as the Water Resources Department in 1978) is involved in many activities throughout the Rogue Basin directed at improving the health and vitality of our watersheds.  Activities include water quality monitoring, regional TMDL implementation and coordination, regional water quality planning, endangered species conservation, laboratory analysis of water quality samples, watershed education, and greenway planning and construction. Natural Resources supplies technical assistance and planning services to RVCOG members and other partner organizations, provides staff support for multidisciplinary committees, and board support for partner organizations. In 2014, Natural Resources became part of the Planning Department.

Mission Statement

Work with communities and partners in the Rogue River Basin to conserve and enhance the health of our watersheds by facilitiating the development and implementation of regional strategies, and by providing technical and educational assistance. We seek to achieve a balance between economic well-being and healthy natural systems.
