Northwest Oregon Restoration Partnership: A Model for Successful Watershed Restoration

In Tillamook, OR, a partnership for watershed restoration began in 2002 with several partners. By 2011, the project had grown to become the Northwest Oregon Restoration Partnership and now includes nearly 35 partners. The primary objective of this cooperative effort is to promote healthy forest and riparian ecosystem conditions by collecting and growing native plant seeds and cuttings to develop genetically adapted, large planting stock that is able to withstand vegetative competition and thrive after planting. Providing this type of plant stock is useful for meeting management plan goals and implementing restoration activities on lands administered by the U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and on lands of interest to the various watershed organizations. The effort was designed to encourage the application of innovative solutions to forest and riparian health conditions on an ongoing basis across the landscape. These actions support the Oregon Plan for Salmon and Watersheds and meet multiple BLM strategic goals and planning objectives, including but not limited to community support, partnerships, education, youth, fish and wildlife habitat, water quality, and biological system integrity.
