Section 7. Abstract


This proposal addresses the need to improve watershed conditions in the lower Joseph Creek drainage through coordinating management and restoration across multiple land ownerships. The primary objective of this project is to facilitate discussions between multiple public, private and tribal landowners to develop a Cooperative Resource Management Plan (CRMP) for the watershed, which meets the guidelines of, and updates, the Wallowa County-Nez Perce Tribe Salmon Recovery Plan. Using the CRMP process, a complete watershed assessment will be conducted through public-private partnerships. Based on the findings of the assessment, action plans will be written which outline management, restoration and monitoring and mechanisms for coordinating watershed activities. This project addresses the Fish and Wildlife Program’s objectives of supporting coordination between private, state, federal and tribal land managers and pursuing ecosystem approaches to resource management. The expected outcomes of the project are: (1) an overall coordinated resource management plan for the lower Joseph Creek watershed, with action plans which will guide coordinated management, restoration and monitoring, and (2) a watershed assessment. Project monitoring efforts will focus on completing assessment activities and action plans according to schedule.
