Oak Creek descends nearly 2000 feet from its timbered headwaters through residential, farm and conservation lands, into the urban reach in Corvallis and its confluence with the Marys River. The Collaborative exists to care for this special place where we live, work and play.

Learn about the efforts to steward and enhance the Oak Creek watershed and how you can be involved.

Access the current maps, stories and data that characterize the Oak Creek watershed and communities in Benton County, Oregon.

The Oak Creek Watershed is located within the ancestral homelands of the Marys River Band of Kalapuya or the Ampinefu as they were known to themselves. In 1855 these people signed the Willamette Valley Treaty of 1855. Delve into more of Oak Creeks history and past research with the resources here.
