What is the Coos Watershed Association?
The Coos Watershed Association is a local non-profit organization formed in late 1993.

What is the Coos watershed?
A watershed is the area of land, from ridge to ridge, that ultimately drains to a particular body of water. The “Coos watershed” is the area of land that drains through Coos Bay into the Pacific Ocean. It includes all forks and tributaries of the Coos and Millicoma Rivers, and all of the sloughs and creeks that drain into Coos Bay.
