Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watershed

Framework Type: 

Publication Year: 

"Restoring our native fish populations and the aquatic systems that support them to productive and sustainable levels that will provide substantial environmental, cultural, and economic benefits." This is the mission of the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds, an initiative all Oregonians can join to help restore healthy watersheds that support the economy and quality of life of Oregon. Agriculture, forestry, recreation, fisheries, and industry all need healthy watersheds, along with every person and community in Oregon. The Plan has a strong focus on salmon because they have such great cultural, economic and recreational importance to Oregonians - and because they are important indicators of watershed health. Monitoring under the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds includes documenting the current condition of watershed health, evaluating changes over time, and determining the effectiveness of actions and programs.
