Community and Forest Service Leaders in Crook County launched the Ochoco Forest Restoration Collaborative in 2012 to address past forest and natural resource conflicts that have hampered much-needed forest restoration work on the Ochoco National Forest and local communities now and into the future.
This document summarizes OFRC input to the Ochoco National Forest’s Wolf Creek Watershed Analysis process. It contains collaboratively-developed descriptions of current conditions, desired future conditions, and management recommendations for five broad resource areas in the Wolf Watershed: vegetation, aquatics and riparian, wildlife, transportation, and socioeconomics.
Watershed analyses are intended to develop a scientifically based understanding of the interaction of landscape patterns within the watershed to serve as a guide for the type and priority of future restoration and management activities. Watershed analyses are also used as a tool for management decisions that rely upon an understanding of existing conditions.
