The guiding vision for the Action Plan is that the McKenzie River Sub-basin supports exceptional water quality and fish and wildlife habitats in balance with human quality of life. During 2015 and 2016, the McKenzie River Sub-basin Strategic Action Plan was developed in cooperation with, and with contributions from, numerous partners including residents and landowners, U.S. Forest Service, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, McKenzie River Trust, Upper Willamette Soil & Water Conservation District, Lane Council of Governments, Weyerhaeuser Company, McKenzie Watershed Stewardship Group and the McKenzie Collaborative. As such, the plan represents a unified vision for achieving the major outcomes.
McKenzie River Watershed Conservation Strategy
The McKenzie River Watershed Conservation Strategy provides a plan for Council action and partnerships. The strategy outlines a framework for collaborating with watershed residents and other interests to protect and enhance the watershed’s important habitats and resources. This effort will enhance community stewardship, contribute to the restoration of the watershed’s threatened spring chinook salmon run, and improve habitats for other fish and wildlife species.
McKenzie River Sub-basin Assessment
The McKenzie River Sub-basin Assessment summarizes the findings of the McKenzie River Sub-basin Assessment: Technical Report. The sub-basin assessment tells a story about the McKenzie River watershed. What is the McKenzie’s ecological history, how is the McKenzie doing today, and where is the McKenzie watershed headed ecologically?
