Chehalem Valley Watershed Project is a group of students from Newberg High School who are advocating for the environment through hands-on research, restoration work, and conservation education. With assistance from outdoor professionals and community donors, we identify, design, and implement environmental conservation projects in the Newberg-Dundee area.

We are a group of students, educators, and outdoor professionals who value environmental education and conservation.

Our student leaders work alongside community leaders to study our ecosystem, restore watersheds, and educate others about our Earth.

There are several ways you can get involved. Donate a product or service. Volunteer with us. Contribute money to our general project fund.
