As we enter the holiday season, OWC would like to take this chance to thank all those who have helped make the organization's work possible. 


Thank you to our supporters.

As OWC continues to build on its 25 year history, we are fortunate to have fantastic partners throughout the Umatilla Basin and beyond. Partners who help support OWC or have collaborated with us in 2017 include the Northeast Oregon Water Association, Umatilla Electric Cooperative, the Eastern Oregon Women's Coalition, the Oregon Environmental Council, and the SAGE Center. 


Thank you to our members.

OWC is fortunate to have a strong membership base. Contributions from our members have enabled the organization to sustain its education and outreach efforts in the Umatilla Basin. 


Thank you to Bill Porfily and Mike Wick for their time on the OWC Board. 

In October, the Water Coalition said goodbye to Bill Porfily and Mike Wick and welcomed three new faces. Both Bill and Mike had been on the board since 2000, and their 17 years of guidance and service to OWC cannot be underestimated. 


Thank you to all those who have contributed time to advance OWC's mission.

Over the past year, a number of individuals have lent insight and provided guidance to the OWC coordinator, Marika Sitz. As OWC strives to advance education about water and agriculture issues in the Basin, this sharing of knowledge is critical and greatly appreciated.
