Puyallup River Watershed Council



The 2019 Puyallup Watershed Small Grants cycle closed on 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). 

With over 1,000 square miles, this is a large watershed including urban, rural, agricultural, marine, forest, and a mountain! The 2018 population is estimated at 423,684 or 404 people per square mile.

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