CHIN1.5: Establish regional scientific standards for protecting and restoring stream riparian zones
Summarize accomplishments from:
Regional Priority Approach Description
Approach - Establish science-based standards region-wide when protecting and restoring effective riparian zones on all salmon and steelhead streams. Include other key biological attributes such as floodplains, off channel habitats and riverine wetlands.
Desired Outcome - Science-based standards for protecting and restoring effective riparian zones on all salmon and steelhead streams established region-wide.
Policy Needs - N/A
Example Actions - Establish effective riparian management guidance manual, work currently underway by WDFW.
Proposal Guidance - Describe how your proposal includes other key biological attributes such as floodplains, off-channel habitats, and riverine wetlands. Describe how your approach can be integrated with WDFW’s guidance manual.
Local Context - Local context provides additional specificity on how a Regional Priority approach should be implemented in each local area; examples include sequencing, partners to consider, and critical areas. Local context for this Regional Priority approach is available here.
