Mission Statement


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.
