WHAT ARE YOUR LAND USE PRIORITIES?

The South Fork John Day Watershed Council is working with private landowners, ODFW’s Phillip W. Schneider Wildlife Area, Forest Service, and BLM to plan and prioritize projects in the South Fork John Day River Watershed.  As a stakeholder in the watershed, your input is vital.

Our goal is to create a scope of work that will ensure economic strength, ecological health, and cultural preservation for the watershed and its residents. Completing this survey will ensure that we set goals that respond to your land use needs and priorities.

All responses will be anonymous.  The survey will close Friday, October 6th at 9:00 pm.  If you would like to know the results of the survey, you can request them from South Fork John Day Watershed Council Coordinator Amy Stiner at 541-792-0435 or astiner@outlook.com after October 11th, 2017.
