HRWG Awarded Funding to Develop Strategic Action Plan
The Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board recently awarded $95,000 to the Hood River Watershed Group to develop a Strategic Action Plan (SAP) and finalize a Communication and Outreach Plan. The SAP will identify and prioritize restoration and management actions intended to restore aquatic habitat for threatened fish species, while the Communication Plan will identify actions to educate and engage local residents in protecting watershed health. Funds will be used to hire a strategic planning facilitator and science consultants to support HRWG partners in developing the plans.
