We had a great turn-out on November 19th and want to thank all that came out to the presentation and panel discussion with Dave Clough, Gilles Wendling and Mike Squire. The full Englishman River Status Report can be viewed here. The Backgrounder on the Health of the Watershed in 2013 can be found here, and summarizes the full report highlighting the most crucial information.
The challenge now is to develop a framework of monitoring and restoration that will maintain the health of the Englishman River watershed. To do this we need to engage our local community. There are several ways you can get involved:
Water Quality Monitoring
Measure water flows in summer
Collect water quality samples
Operate downstream traps to enumerate salmon smolts
Fry salvage in pools on the river during summer flows
Observe Record Report
Take the Streamkeepers Certification Course and learn more
Photo Point Monitoring
Take photos at key areas on the river and at special sites like the claybanks
Participate in a systematic review of all fish habitat structures installed since 2002
Invasive Species Monitoring
Participate in mapping and awareness
