Clearwater River Watershed One Watershed One Plan Public Survey
We are beginning a planning process for the Clearwater River Watershed (see map below). This planning process is used to determine the best focus for our local time and funding to manage our natural resources including lakes, streams, wetlands, forests, prairie, and soil health. We want to hear from you about what you care about in the region. What important issues need attention now and in the future to continue the progress we’ve made in the area? Please submit responses by June 11. This survey is anonymous. If you would like to be on an email list to receive updates about this project, please email Chester Powell at Clearwater SWCD:
