What We Do


The Nisqually River Council works to promote the environmental, social, and economic integrity of the Nisqually Watershed. Our work is guided by the Nisqually Watershed Stewardship Plan, which calls for a wide variety of projects, including land protection, habitat restoration, community education, sustainable businesses and integrated communities.

Collaboration and strong partnerships are the key to our success. The NRC’s associated non-profit organizations and agency representatives work in tandem to pursue projects that improve the people, plants and animals of the Nisqually Watershed. The Nisqually Land Trust protects critical lands through acquisition or conservation easements. The Nisqually River Foundation (NRF) provides staffing and funding for the Nisqually River Council, the Nisqually River Education Project, and other NRC initiatives through grants, contracts, and community-based fundraising. The NRF’s current projects support healthy lands, waters, wildlife, and communities around the watershed.
