Job Announcement: The Grande Ronde Model Watershed (GRMW) is seeking a full time employee, stationed in Enterprise, Oregon, to assist in fulfilling our mission.
Position Summary: Coordinate with restoration partners in Wallowa County using the GRMW Stepwise process and Wallowa Restoration Atlas. The Project Coordinator (PC) needs to be proficient in communication. The PC facilitates monthly coordination meetings, provides technical review of habitat restoration designs and assists partner organizations in prioritizing and acquiring funding for watershed restoration projects.

Through the GRMW Education Outreach Program we have developed Ripples in the Grande Ronde, a quarterly newsletter that is distributed through Union and Wallowa county's local newspapers as an insert.
The newsletter highlights collaborative projects in the Grande Ronde Basin, serves as a media source for other natural resource agencies, and includes a variety of water-related information equally interesting to adults and children. You may select newsletters below and view them in PDF format. If you would like a printed copy of the Ripples, contact the GRMW office.
In 2009, the GRMW teamed up with Green Fire Productions to create a documentry of the Six Ranch Restoration project called "The Best Country".
Today we have a great opportunity to restore salmon and steelhead habitat in northeastern Oregon.
In The Best Country two longtime Wallowa valley ranching families tell their stories about restoring salmon and steelhead habitat on their land.
