Save Chehalem Mountain

Welcome, Neighbors!

We are Save Chehalem Mountain, Inc. We are a non-profit public welfare organization 501(c)(4). Our mission is to maintain and protect the sustainable use of natural resources in the Chehalem Groundwater Limited Area. We believe water availability and fire safety are incredibly important. Using history, science, and ethics, we will always strive to preserve the limited resources of our community and encourage sustainable use of water so that many generations to come will be able to keep their homes and businesses thriving on our aquifer.


Save Chehalem Mountain is a locally organized non-profit organization established to ensure that the Chehalem Mountain watershed area provides the quality and quantity of water, environmental stability and fire protection necessary to support the homes/businesses, fish, wildlife, recreation, biological diversity, ecological values, public health and a sound economy.


Save Chehalem Mountain will work to achieve and sustain a healthy, resilient and properly functioning environment and watershed, where streams, aquifers, wetlands, riparian forests, upland forests/trees, and other natural resources provide a sustainable ecological system that supports good water quality, productive habitat for native plant and animal communities, and enhanced quality of life for the homes & businesses who depend on this source of water.

Our aims are to:

  • Restore and improve the condition and health of the Chehalem Mountain watershed,
  • Promote sustainable and equitable development and management of groundwater and surface water for maximum beneficial use without waste, and
  • Foster stewardship, education, participation and financial support for the purpose of the conservation, restoration, enhancement and maintenance of the Chehalem Mountain watershed.
