Northwestern Division has recognized the Upper Rogue Watershed Association as its nominee for the Corps’ 2012 Excellence in Partnerships Award.
URWA has implemented environmental restoration projects, organized partnerships, donated hundreds of hours of volunteer labor and obtained over $89,000 in contributions that directly benefited our Rogue River Basin environmental stewardship and recreation missions.
The association has also coordinated outreach efforts that explained the importance of the Rogue River Basin ecosystem and the Corps’ management role to local youths.
“We are fortunate to have individuals such as you who unselfishly give of themselves for the betterment of all,” said Division Commander Brig. Gen. Anthony Funkhouser.
