  1. 1. Planning a Strategy for “Recovery” From Neah Bay to the Columbia River-- How do we synthesize this? http://www.wcssp.org NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 1
  2. 2. WRIA 20 WRIA 21 WRIA 22 WRIA 23 WRIA 24 Drainage of 5 WRIAs to Pacific Ocean: Cape Flattery to N (WRIA 20— Soleduck-Hoh HUC, Clallam County), to Cape Disappointment south, and east to include Chehalis River Basin. WRIA 21 (QIN), 22-23 (Chehalis; Grays Harbor County), and 24--Pacific County. 3,750,025 acres 395 marine shoreline miles 4718 miles of fish-bearing rivers and streams N—Forks, small estuaries, more federal forests, tribal U&A S—cities, ag, huge estuaries, more private forestry NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 2
  3. 3. Initial 6-month pre-Region Planning • SRFB funding no longer to LEGs, only Regions • No same ESA species throughout • Initial planning through Grays Harbor County • 4 LEGs involved (5 WRIAs) • How synthesize? N-S differences • List of commonalities • Underlying Final Report 6/20/07 (the ROC— see next slide) NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 3
  4. 4. June 20, 2007 Report on the Consideration of Forming a Coastal Regional Governance Unit for Salmon Sustainability • Planning Group of coastal entities and stakeholders • Loose federation of LEGs with own strategies • Ground rules for operation • Meetings, decision-making • Voting (tribal rights balanced? How) • Allocation of funds? How? NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 4
  5. 5. Next Steps: Concurrent Processes • SRFB declares we are a Recovery Region (9/07) • Regular Meetings of LEGs and other reps • Allocation Formulas (Technical Discussion) • Development of Interlocal Agreement • Development of Bylaws • WSC does Needs Assessment (grant) • Engagement of The Nature Conservancy (CAP) • NETMAP NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 5
  6. 6. SRFB declares us a recovery region • September 2007 declaration • Jan. 2008 RCO grant for initial stages • Planning entities meet about 1X/month. (LEGs, GSRO, WDFW, various feds, NGOs— TNC, WSC) • Development of Interlocal Agreement • Development allocation of funding NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 6
  7. 7. Interlocal Agreement • Signed in 2009 (signatories trickled in) • Signed by just government entities • Created fiscal agent (GHC) • Stated role of Lead Entities (strong federation) • Provided for staffing • Established voting (how to deal with 6 governments in WRIA 20?--CAUCUS) NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 7
  8. 8. Early Allocation ideas by a Technical Committee need revisiting NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 8

  10. 10. Technical: How Proceed • WSC “Needs Assessment Grant” 2008-9 • Cooperators: WCSSP, NASSP, Creative Community Solutions, governments and stakeholders • Several facilitated workshops, meetings with affected parties, consultations. • QIN GIS overview (contract) NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 10
  11. 11. Technical 2: Results WSC • Identification of needs, data gaps, analyses for salmon in Coastal Region in report • Salmon stream rankings, updated LFAs • Maps produced and more on way (ONRC), modeling tools • New working partners • Web page with library NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 11
  12. 12. Technical 3: Problems • Some disagreements with the run rankings • Disagreements about use of miles, ESA • Map programs not yet accessible for review outside NASSP (Google Earth plans) • Need to update SASI (Salmonid Stock Inventory) --$$$ • Need data stewardship • Web page still has glitches (e.g., holes in the library) NWIFC HABITAT CONF. 11/3/10 WCSSP STRATEGY 12
