Section 7. Abstract


The CRITFC Watershed Program Workplan is designed to provide effective and efficient coordination, process review, standardized subbasin watershed assessment and analysis, expedite on-the-ground implementation, and promote public awareness and education of watershed restoration and protection projects in eight major subbasins of the Columbia River. The workplan was developed in coordination with tribal fisheries programs of the Umatilla, Yakama, Warm Springs, and Nez Perce Tribes to implement focused watershed habitat restoration in coordination with salmon production in the Yakima, Klickitat, Walla Walla, Umatilla, Salmon, Clearwater, Hood, and Deschutes subbasins. The project is a 3 year pilot project beginning in 1998 to 2000. Project activities are the result of a workplan developed from and organized and consistent with the Wy-Kan-Ush-Mi Wa-Kish-Wit and the NPPC Fish & Wildlife Program.
