Monitoring & Research
Through ongoing research and monitoring, the Committee assesses riparian conditions and outstandingly remarkable resources along the designated Wild & Scenic river segments and contributing tributaries. Monitoring and study recommendations are used to identify follow-up action steps and target stewardship activities within the watershed. Various monitoring techniques are employed for aquatic and terrestrial environments. One of the primary goals with ongoing monitoring efforts is to encourage citizen science and participation. Stream Teams and Volunteers help greatly with this effort.
Currently we are:
- Monitoring Water Quality & Macro-Invertebrates
- Documenting river conditions through Photo-Monitoring
- Conducting Visual Surveys of the river to assess issues
- Providing funding and support for a Wildlife Corridor Management Study in the watershed
