Get Involved

You and your neighbors throughout the Basin know better than anybody what’s needed now and for the future. The Chehalis Basin Strategy depends on experiences, knowledge, and input from residents to decide where and how to invest in the highest priority solutions.

There are multiple ways to get involved with the Strategy:

  • Access resources to help protect and improve your property
  • Weigh in on plans for local projects
  • Weigh in during key public processes for large-scale projects
  • Volunteer at local events
  • Attend monthly Chehalis Basin Board meetings

Visit our Resources for Basin Residents page for more information.
