The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds (PCW) is a collaborative effort among public-and private-sector citizens in the Coos Bay community to develop locally-driven approaches to responsible development, and to help prepare for climate-related changes on Oregon's south coast.
The Steering Committee
The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds (PCW) is led by the Partnership Steering Committee, a diverse assemblage of community members representing local interests, and facilitated by staff at the South Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve and the Coos Watershed Association. The full Steering Committee is broken into subcommittees that meet regularly to oversee different aspects of the project.
The Action Plan describes steps that can be taken to help the community address issues that need to be resolved for the community to reach its vision of what local social, economic and environmental conditions should look like in 20-25 years. The Partnership for Coastal Watersheds is currently facilitating the implementation of the highest priority actions highlighted in the Action Plan.
