Watershed Education, WE Team
“Empowering Oregonians with comprehensive watershed education.”
Who are WE?
WE stands for OSU Extension Watershed Education team. We are a multidisciplinary and cross-college team of professionals at Oregon State University with a united goal of extending research-based information on watershed health to other professionals working in the field, to decision makers, and to the general public. Our work touches all aspects of watershed health and management- from restoration and gardening, to fish biology and ecology. Always, WE strive to improve our environment through encouraging our learners at all levels to make personal investments in improving their own watershed in whatever ways are most appropriate- whether that be through their personal choices, volunteering or as part of their career.
WE Themes- Major areas of programming:
Land Use- Linking land use, water and watersheds
Human Values- Integrating human values with watersheds
Ecosystems, Habitats, Organisms- Conserving and managing ecosystems, organisms and habitats.
MWS Program Update:
The WE Team is working with the Oregon Master Naturalist program to create a watershed stewardship track within the Oregon Master Naturalist framework. Future MWS classes and Water Schools will be offered in partnership with the OMN program. For more information about this exciting partnership please contact Megan Kleibacker or Jason O'Brien, OMN Program Coordinator.
