THE NATURE CONSERVANCY: Bad River Watershed Council

Purpose

The Nature Conservancy will conduct an organizational development and informational & educational project in the Bad River watershed in Ashland, Bayfield, and Iron Counties. Activities involved with this project include; organization of a Bad River Watershed Council, implementation of a long-term educational effort in the entire watershed, and implementation of a long-term citizen volunteer water quality monitoring program. The educational effort will include the development of a watershed council brochure and the conduct of a sociological landowner survey. Specific deliverables for this grant project include: 1. A final report that summarizes the grant project activities and includes the watershed council mission statement and bylaws, newsletters, brochure, survey results, and the monitoring program design and manuals. A special condition of this grant project is the recognition that the water quality data collected by the citizen volunteers and analyzed by field kit methods, does not meet the quality control standards of the U.S. Environmental Pollution Agency or the Wisconsin DNR. 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 brochure(s), public meeting(s), and local newspaper articles.
