Community Engagement and Field Work

The Englishman River Status Report is complete and can be viewed in full here.  MVIHES has also prepared a Backgrounder on the Health of the Watershed in 2013 that can be found here that summarizes the full report highlighting the most crucial information.

The challenge now is to develop a framework of monitoring and restoration that will maintain the health of the Englishman River watershed.  To do this we need to engage our local community.  There are several ways you can get involved: 

Water Quality Monitoring

Measure water flows in summer

Collect water quality samples

Fish Monitoring

Operate downstream traps to enumerate salmon smolts

Fry salvage in pools on the river during summer flows

Observe Record Report

Take the Streamkeepers Certification Course and learn more

Photo Point Monitoring

Take photos at key areas on the river and at special sites like the claybanks

Restoration Structures

Participate in a systematic review of all fish habitat structures installed since 2002

Invasive Species Monitoring

Participate in mapping and awareness
