Beginning its work in 2006, the Willamette Falls Heritage Area Coalition is a partnership of many public, private, and nonprofit organizations that share a common passion for the Willamette Falls, its heritage, and the experiences of visitors to the falls from near and far.

An Initial Concept was drafted in 2010.

The members signed a Declaration of Cooperation in June 2011.

In July 2012 the Willamette Falls Heritage Area Coalition received an IRS determination of status as a 501(c)(3) Public Charity.

All along the way members of the Board of Directors have met with government officials, businesses, organizations and the public to inform interested parties of our effort.  You can view a sample presentation here.
