The Coquille Watershed Association is a 501(c)(3), community driven organization with the mission to work collaboratively with landowners to develop and implement voluntary watershed restoration, enhancement, and engagement activities that promote healthy and resilient ecosystems and economies in the Coquille watershed.
The Coquille watershed encompasses a 1,089 square mile area primarily located in Coos County, OR. The upland headwaters originate in the Coast Range and drain into one of four forks: North Fork, East Fork, Middle Fork, and South Fork. Just downstream from Myrtle Point, the North and South Forks converge to form the main-stem Coquille River that flows to the Pacific Ocean at the town of Bandon.
The Coquille watershed provides critical habitats for native fish and wildlife species including salmon, lamprey, waterfowl, and more! The watershed is home to about 23,000 people and it supports a diverse natural resource based economy including ranching, timber, recreation, and tourism.
