The Partnership 

The West Willamette Restoration Partnership (WWRP) is a coalition of engaged volunteers, community groups, landowners and organizations working to conserve and enhance the forests and natural areas of SW Portland. Our Partnership supports habitat enhancement and stewardship efforts in southwest Portland’s Willamette River subwatersheds to provide a key link in the wildlife corridor connecting Forest Park and Tryon Creek State Natural Area. 


Partnership meetings have been essential to the success of WWRP. These meetings have been an important channel for sharing information across organizations and throughout the corridor. Additionally, they allow open communication between WWRP partners so as to maintain relationships, support collaboration, and identify priorities for the corridor.

Any organization or individual can join the partner network with a commitment and investment to the mission and values of the WWRP. 

Our Network

Our network of Partners form one united group. We initiate projects as a Partnership and get behind each others' projects to lend support. Within the Partnership, there are different levels of involvement, with all levels being essential for the Partnership to function efficiently and effectively. See our network of Partners below. 

Core Partners
The Core WWRP Partners regularly attend Quarterly Partnership meetings and provide funding and administration of the Partnership to maintain organizational capacity and enable coordination of on-the-ground restoration work, outreach efforts, data/research management, and fundraising in the corridor across public and private land.
