Improving Claggett Creek Watershed
Through Effective Volunteer Projects

Claggett Creek collects water from and flows through Salem, Keizer, and portions of Marion County.  The main water course is Claggett Creek, but the watershed includes Labish Ditch and other water courses that flow into it.  Claggett Creek  is a tributary of the Willamette River connecting to the larger river at Clear Lake.

Claggett Creek has limited public access, areas thick with invasive plants, high levels of bacteria, low levels of oxygen, high temperatures, and high levels of Mercury from soil erosion.  These characteristics inhibit its ability to support fish and other wildlife, native plant species, and to provide a healthy environment enjoyed by the community.  

Citizens  from Marion County, Salem and Keizer work together on the Watershed Council to plan and carry out activities that will address problems and improve the Claggett Creek Watershed. 

Join us in working to improve Claggett Creek, its tributaries, and their value to our community.
