Scott River Watershed Council’s mission is to facilitate communication and science-based collaborative solutions for natural resource concerns in Scott Valley.

They promote and support education, restoration, and scientific planning and monitoring in order to ensure the sustainability of the natural and human communities of the watershed, now and for future generations. Their leadership in addressing these complex issues brings effective solutions to the local community and beyond.

Why We Partner

This was a small grant in thanks for the education they provided about river and habitat restoration. By reversing some of the man-made changes to the river through simple low-tech flow diversion and natural dam construction, they’ve been able to make significant improvements to the surrounding ecosystems.


What we learned about river management challenges and watershed restoration will be applied to future projects.
