Why Community-Based
Watershed Management?
           The health of our communities
            and economies depend on the
            health of our watersheds.

           The concerns of the community
            and the benefits derived from
            the opportunities within our
            watersheds should be central to
            natural resources and land
            management planning and
            decision making.
 Sharing knowledge
  and resources
 Building local
  economies
 Building a regional
  voice for Community
  Based Watershed

Editor's Notes

  1. Every day local municipalities, tribes, land owners, businesess, and local citizens are making decisions that impact the resiliency of the regions watershed resources. These impacts either support sustinable development of our communities or hinder it We know, based on experience and examples from across the country, that when communities have access to information, resources, and planning tools they are able to develop watershed restoration, stewardship, and research projects. Including; mapping, in stream flow reservation work, anadramous fish cataloging, habitat assessments, and water quality testing. The end reslut is – informed management of the watershed resources on the local level
  2. is well defined and can be effective but rigid and does not have local buy – in design watershed plans and determine regulations, management and development activities
  3. In rural areas… This is nothing new- in fact go to the google EPA community based watershed management- based on the agencies National Estuaries Program they have deveoped an entire toolit to advance CBWM efforts country wide. CA, Oregon, WA, Ohio
  4. Here is a snap shot of what these type of efforts look like
