Fostering stewardship in 

Marys River Watershed Council offers several outdoor education programs for area schools, engaging them in hands-on, scientific inquiry-based lessons in watershed science and ecology.

Each year we host more than 750 students at various sites around Marys River watershed. Many of our programs are based on lands owned or managed by Greenbelt Land Trust, and lessons are co-led with our partners including Institute for Applied Ecology, Benton Soil and Water Conservation District, and Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Marys River Watershed Council provides classroom presentations and field trips to K-12 students at local schools for meaningful environmental experiences.

The Youth Watershed Council is a year-long high school program that broadens students’ STEM, leadership, environmental stewardship and career development experiences and skills. 

MRWC co-leads Rock Creek Camp with the City of Corvallis and we are always looking for more opportunities to lead outdoor activities in the summer

 Yearly, MRWC staff volunteer to lead stations for  Linn-Benton Salmon Watch during with students learn about rivers, fish and wildlife.
