ABOUT THIS BOOK


Entering the Watershed is the product of a two-year project established by the Pacific Rivers Council to develop new federal riverine protection and restoration policy alternatives. It recommends a comprehensive new approach to river protection based on principles of watershed dynamics, ecosystem function, and conservation biology -- a nationwide, strategic community- and ecosystem-based watershed restoration initiative. The book:



  • describes in detail the existing level of damage to rivers and species

  • analyzes flaws and gaps in existing policy

  • provides the framework necessary to develop new policies

  • outlines the scientific underpinnings and management strategies needed in new policy

  • makes specific policy proposals
