We rely on the support of people like you to provide the critical funding we need to provide meaningful and dynamic environmental education to the next generation of environmental stewards. We owe our successes to the generosity and commitment of our donors. Each year we must raise $50,000 to run our local Salmon Watch program. This money is used for equipment, bus transportation for students, substitute teachers which allow teachers to accompany their students, coordination and operation expenses. Your contribution to the McKenzie Watershed Alliance which serves as the fiscal agent for the McKenzie Watershed Council, and is a registered 501(c)3 organization, will allow us to continue providing high quality environmental education to students. Contributions are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
