Puyallup River Watershed Council



The PRWC's mission is to restore, protect and enhance the environmental, economic and cultural health of our watershed, from Mount Rainier to Commencement Bay. We are citizens and representatives of businesses, governments and other groups collaborating to achieve clean water, healthy habitats and thriving communities.

In 2011, the Puyallup River Watershed Foundation and the PRWC merged to create one IRS 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. More information can be found on the PRWC's website and Facebook page.
