Welcome to MolallaRiverWatch.org. Molalla RiverWatch is a non-profit organization
created in 1992 by a group of local citizens for the purpose of protecting,
preserving, and restoring the flora, fauna and water quality of the Molalla
River and its tributaries. Concerned with the excessive amount of garbage
dumped along the river bank and often into the river, we are committed
to promoting respect and understanding of the Molalla River watershed
through education and conservation for present and future generations.
The membership is composed of a diverse group of local people. Our common
bond is a love for the Molalla and the beauty and recreational activities
In 2009, OWEB recognized Molalla RiverWatch as the Molalla River Watershed Council. Read the Press Release...

We hope you will join us and help complete the story of the river and creeks, adding your history and knowledge, as we discuss the results of the 2011 and 2012 surveys of fish populations in the Molalla River, Milk Creek and their tributaries. A summary report of the 2012 Rapid Bio Assessment will be available at the presentation meeting.
