With the safety of our community in mind, and as we follow developing official public health guidance associated with the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Columbia Slough Watershed Council has decided to cancel all public Council events for the remainder of March and April. In addition, our employees will work from home and we will conduct routine Council business virtually for the rest of the month. If you want to get in touch with us, please use the contact form at the bottom of this page.
The greatest public service that we can provide as an organization right now is to help slow and reduce the spread of COVID-19. We anticipate that these measures may need to continue into May, but we will keep you informed as the situation evolves. Thank you for your understanding, and do not hesitate to reach out virtually :) with questions.
Here's to a healthy spring for everyone.
