Section 7. Abstract


The overall goal of the project is assessment of limiting factors to fish and wildlife in the drainage, and correction of those problems. The overall objectives of the project include acquisition of existing information, further assessment of conditions in the watershed, development of prescriptions to allow resource recovery, implementation of prescriptions, development of restoration plans to accelerate recovery and implementation of restoration work. The project seeks to work closely with landowners and governmental agencies. Through this strategy, the project supports the goals, policies and objectives of the FWP (sections 7.1, 7.6, 7.7, 7.8). In the first year of this project, the objectives of the work will be to compile existing information, assess stream and riparian conditions, determine effects of natural processes and land management on fish and wildlife resources, and develop land management prescriptions that allow recovery of resources. In future years, the project plans to direct efforts toward restoration and recovery of habitats, and thereby enhance fish and wildlife production in the drainage.
