Section 7. Abstract


This proposal is three parts: By localizing and supplementing existing hands on oriented curriculum we would teach school age children about watersheds, problems, and restoration. Through one on one and workshops we would teach irrigated producers about irrigation scheduling and simple adjustments and repairs thereby improving delivery systems, monitoring water use, saving energy and money, and keeping fertilizer and pesticides out of ground water. With a hands on approach we would implement a pilot irrigation scheduling system for central Oregon. By capitalizing on existing Juniper Control projects that were established as far back as 1982 we would gain new information and disseminate the same to benefit landowners and agencies with thousands of acres dominated with Juniper. We would use the old surveys as base lines to study the changes in plant communities and impose overland flow measurements during erosion events to add to the knowledge base. Proven Extension methods of tours, workshops, one on one consultation would be used for the educational efforts. At the end of two years, students would be more aware of watershed issues and localized curriculum would be in use by teachers, 4-H leaders and others. Also irrigation users would change practices, and the basic program would be in place for a continued irrigation scheduling operation. A wealth of information on the benefits of Juniper Control would be publicized and disseminated to private and public land managers. Surveys and reports will be completed to document curriculum in place, practices changed, and information disseminated.
