FLORENCE COUNTY LAKES & RIVERS ASSOCIATION: Pine/Popple Wild River Restoration

Purpose

Florence County Lakes and Rivers Association will use this grant for two primary tasks. The first will be to develop a comprehensive GIS database for the entire Pine and Popple River Watersheds. This will be accomplished by hiring a consultant to gather and assemble existing GIS data layers and collection of new field data by agency personnel and FCLARA volunteers. A primary focus of the data collection and mapping is to provide information for coldwater species habitat improvement in the river mainstems and tributaries. 1. Assemble existing databases for the Pine/Popple watershed from Local, Regional, and State agencies for use in a Geographical Information System. 2. Collect locational data for impounded reaches and groundwater inflow areas of the Pine/Popple rivers and tributaries. 3. Monitor instream water temperature at numerous locations and assemble a database of temperatures along with location of measurements. The second goal is to build organizational capacity of FCLARA and strengthen their efforts to restore the wild rivers ecosystems. 1. Develop an organizational strategic plan. 2. Obtain Federal 501(c)(3) recognition. 3. Train FCLARA volunteers in river data collection methods and techniques. 4. Education to raise public awareness about the organization and the river planning project. 5. Dissemination of information about cold-water fisheries to FCLARA members, local government and the general public. Deliverables: 1. GIS databases on compact disk including the stream monitoring data collected by the project. 2. Completed application process to the IRS for 501(c)(3) status for FCLARA. 3. FCLARA strategic planning report. The Department of Natural Resources will be provided with both a paper copy and an electronic copy of the final report. The project results will be disseminated to the public by newsletter(s), public meeting(s), and local newspaper articles.
