Objectives and Tasks

Objective Task
1. Synthesize the current state of knowledge on present and historic fish and wildlife habitat and population conditions throughout the watershed and identify information gaps a. Collect and organize completed sub-watershed analyses and other studies
1. Synthesize the current state of knowledge on present and historic fish and wildlife habitat and population conditions throughout the watershed and identify information gaps b. Identify and assess the status and trends of key human (e.g., dam regulation of flows) and natural characteristics (e.g. degree of channel confinement) and processes of the watershed and how they function and interact
1. Synthesize the current state of knowledge on present and historic fish and wildlife habitat and population conditions throughout the watershed and identify information gaps c. Assess types, extent and locations of terrestrial and riparian-aquatic habitat modifications and existing high-quality habitat
1. Synthesize the current state of knowledge on present and historic fish and wildlife habitat and population conditions throughout the watershed and identify information gaps d. Identify the target species, the status of those species, and important habitat attributes for maintaining or improving populations
1. Synthesize the current state of knowledge on present and historic fish and wildlife habitat and population conditions throughout the watershed and identify information gaps e. Work with Fish and Wildlife Task Group/Watershed Council to identify information gaps
2. Where gaps exist, assess types, extent, and locations of habitat modifications and existing high-quality habitat a. Describe and quantify current terrestrial and riparian-aquatic habitat conditions, including high- quality habitat
2. Where gaps exist, assess types, extent, and locations of habitat modifications and existing high-quality habitat b. Assess habitat conditions through time using historical maps and photographs
2. Where gaps exist, assess types, extent, and locations of habitat modifications and existing high-quality habitat c. Determine the location, nature, and extent of habitat changes
2. Where gaps exist, assess types, extent, and locations of habitat modifications and existing high-quality habitat d. Develop a chronology of habitat change and describe the natural and human-caused disturbance events that influence the direction of the changes
3. Delineate locations for potential habitat protection and restoration and describe benefits to fish and wildlife a. Identify important terrestrial and riparian-aquatic habitat refuges or areas sensitive to management activities
3. Delineate locations for potential habitat protection and restoration and describe benefits to fish and wildlife b. Identify areas that most directly affect riparian-aquatic habitat function (e.g., wetlands, side channels, and flood plains) or terrestrial habitat quality (e.g., multi-layered forest stands)
3. Delineate locations for potential habitat protection and restoration and describe benefits to fish and wildlife c. Work with Fish and Wildlife Task Group/Watershed Council to identify habitat protection and restoration goals and objectives
3. Delineate locations for potential habitat protection and restoration and describe benefits to fish and wildlife d. Identify areas that may be easily restored to provide more refuges and/or connect productive habitat types
3. Delineate locations for potential habitat protection and restoration and describe benefits to fish and wildlife e. Identify how site-specific protection or restoration measures will maintain or improve populations
4. Prioritize locations for habitat restoration and protection a. Provide recommendations on site-specific terrestrial and riparian-aquatic protection and restoration projects
4. Prioritize locations for habitat restoration and protection b. Work with Fish and Wildlife Task Group/Watershed Council to identify protection and restoration project priorities, including land acquisitions
5. Develop watershed-wide habitat GIS database a. Develop GIS data layers with locations and information on historic and current terrestrial and riparian-aquatic habitat quality
5. Develop watershed-wide habitat GIS database b. Develop GIS data layers with locations and information on habitat protection and restoration sites and priorities
6. Develop habitat/biological monitoring and evaluation plan for the watershed a. Determine watershed indicators to monitor changes in biological or physical states and assess influences of human and natural disturbances and restoration activities
6. Develop habitat/biological monitoring and evaluation plan for the watershed b. Link the monitoring and evaluation plan back to the protection and restoration goals and objectives
6. Develop habitat/biological monitoring and evaluation plan for the watershed c. Work with Fish and Wildlife Managers/Watershed Council to determine monitoring plan?s institutional and financial commitments and time lines

Section 7. Abstract

Abstract

The proposed assessment will synthesize existing information on McKenzie Watershed fish and wildlife habitat, including historical change and current status. Where there are gaps in the habitat knowledge base, the assessment will collect new information. The comprehensive assessment will inventory the extent and types of habitat modifications that have occurred, historical and current high-quality habitat locations, and potential sites for habitat protection and restoration. The fish and wildlife habitat information will be site-specific and maintained in the Council?s GIS database. The assessment will require one year (FY1999) to complete. Information generated by this project will be used, in consultation with landowners, fish and wildlife managers and the Council, to prioritize specific areas for habitat protection and restoration. The project will conclude with recommendations for projects/land acquisitions and a habitat/biological watershed monitoring and evaluation plan.
