UPCOMING EVENTS SPONSORED BY THE WRC
A WRC Paired Watershed Conference: Key Findings on the Environmental Impact of Contemporary Forest Practices.
Join us on Thursday, April 18, 2013 8:00AM to 5:00PM in Corvallis, Oregon at the LaSells Stewart Center. Register today!
The purpose of this conference is to report on the results and progress of the research being carried out in the WRC paired watershed studies. The presentations will cover key findings of the research that has been completed, some final results, preliminary results, current status, and the future direction of the paired watershed studies. Papers presented at this conference will become a special issue of the journal Forest Science.
Watersheds Research Cooperative
The Watersheds Research Cooperative plans a new series of long-term paired watershed studies throughout Oregon that will evaluate the environmental effects on water and fish of contemporary forest management practices now in use on younger intensively managed forests.
These studies will be designed to provide credible scientific information, as well as opportunities to convey science findings through demonstration and public education opportunities.
WRC Full Report
The mission of the Watersheds Research Cooperative (WRC) is to conduct research on the effects of current and expected forest practices on intensively managed commercial forestland on water quality, fisheries and other water-related values.
