Planning! Planning! Planning!

Friends of the Mark West Watershed are preparing two plans. The first is a Strategic Plan for our future activities. The second is a Mark West Watershed Restoration and Stewardship Plan. Everyone is encouraged to participate.

The Sotoyome Resource Conservation District (SRCD) will be taking the lead on the Restoration and Stewardship Plan. The RSP will bring together the science and direct the technical work we will need to accomplish our goals. Download a synopsis of the SRCD's The Upper Mark West Watershed Management Plan.

The Monan’s Rill Institute will be assisting with our strategic plan. Between the two plans, we should have a good road map for our future activities. Check the web site and subscribe to the FMWW email list for future information on the plans.


Strategic Plan includes:

• Who are we, FMWW (Landowners, residents, supporters,
other organizations)?

• What do we want to accomplish (Vision, mission, etc.)?

• Whom can we find who shares our interests (RCD, F&G,
private supporters, etc.)?

• How do we fund our activities?

Restoration and Stewardship Plan includes:

• Identify and describe the Mark West Watershed in geographic
terms and at a scale appropriate to support “parcel” scale
stewardship planning.

• Inventory and collect available environmental data.

• Identify additional data needed for stewardship planning.

• Document the History of the Mark West Watershed (Who
lived here, when, how did they live, and how did they change the

• Recommend reasonable stewardship goals for the community.

• Develop monitoring/feedback loop.
