Biological Outcomes of this project: A complete long-term monitoring and evaluation (M&E) plan is currently under development by our program which will define all expected biological outcomes. This long-term M&E plan will include a ridge top to ridge top philosophy with a emphasis on aquatic habitat for anadromous and resident fish. Watershed and in-stream parameters needed for assessing ecological health will be included. This M&E plan is scheduled for completion in year 2000 activities. Activities in the watershed will lead to the reduction in sediment loads in Newsome Creek and its tributaries by reducing hydrological short circuits that roads create. We are also beginning channel work to restore lost fish habitat due to historical mining that drastically changed the watershed.
Biological Data: Data will be gathered from various agencies once the M&E plan is completed. Along with the data collection, an analysis will be made to determine what monitoring gaps are presents and included in the overall plan to be monitored by our program. Data collection will begin in year 2000 activities.
