How do councils benefit local communities?

The council forum provides local people with a voice in natural resource management that can significantly influence watershed management decisions.

 

  • Watershed councils are comprised of people from the local community. They represent local knowledge with ties to the existing community and its complexity.
  • Watershed councils work across jurisdictional boundaries and across agency mandates to look at the watershed more holistically.
  • The council can be a forum to bring local, state, and federal land management agencies and plans together with local property owners and private land managers.
