MULTI-SCALE COOPERATIVE INVENTORY PROJECT: AN INTEGRAL COMPONENT OF THE OREGON PLAN FOR SALMON AND WATERSHEDS
 
A project initiated in 1990 to provide comprehensive technical information to local fish managers on the condition of Oregon's streams and rivers evolved into a cooperative program with Oregon State University, private and public land managers, and watershed councils. The information was collected on an individual stream basis but was compiled as multi-scale indicators of stream, watershed, and ecoregion conditions. To accomplish inventories at these scales required a diverse funding base, a widely accepted methodology, contiguous surveys across public and private ownership boundaries, and shared databases and GIS coverages. The data are used for basic inventory of aquatic resources, fish and water quality management activities, watershed analysis, and restoration planning. In recent years our habitat monitoring program has become an integral component of the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds, an unprecedented partnership of state, federal, and private interests designed to restore threatened salmon species and watersheds throughout Oregon.
