Puyallup River Watershed Council



The 2019 Puyallup Watershed Small Grants cycle is open from May 13 to July 1, 2019. Visit the Small Grants Program  page for more information and application forms. 

 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. On December 5, 2018, the PRWC was recognized as the Local Integrating Organization (LIO) for the Puyallup-White River watershed (WRIA10). 

More information can also be found on the PRWC
website and Facebook page or contact the coordinator below.
