Partners for Watershed Health
Tree for All engages communities large and small in watershed restoration projects throughout the Tualatin River Watershed in Oregon.
Why It Matters
A single mature tree can absorb carbon dioxide at a rate of 48 pounds annually and release enough oxygen to support two people.
Transforming a Greenway
With improved water quality and habitat for wildlife, Bronson Creek has become an example of an urban wildlife refuge that also benefits its community.
Collaboration among community, municipal, and conservation organizations makes large-scale change and long-term stewardship possible. Public-private partnerships within Oregon’s Washington County improve water quality, sustain native species and support diverse and complex habitats. The results? Better outcomes for human health, ecology and the economy.
