We have developed a site specific restoration plan for the Netarts Bay Watershed based on project specific field surveys, available data on aquatic habitat,salmonid abundance, water quality, fish passage, and land management practices. As a component of this project, we are collecting a comprehensive dataset on aquatic and riparian habitat. This project was conducted under contract to the Tillamook Estuaries Partnership.

We provided data analysis, reporting, and editing services to support the completion of the East Fork Nehalem Watershed Assessment. Our firm had primary responsibility for the production of the final Watershed Assessment. This involved synthesis of existing data, project specific watershed analysis, and coordination with multiple project partners. This project was conducted under contract to the Upper Nehalem Watershed Council.
We synthesized all available data on aquatic and riparian habitat, historical land use, water quality, fish abundance, and anthropogenic disturbance in order to prioritize 7th field sub watersheds for land owner outreach, restoration, and conservation. Over the course of this project, we developed the Computational Ecological Restoration Prioritization (CERP) process. CERP provides a flexible tool for clients to identify and prioritize specific geographic areas based on their unique needs. This project was conducted under contract to the Tillamook Bay Watershed Council with the Wild Salmon Center as a partner.
