The Yager/Van Duzen Environmental Stewards (YES) is a landowner-led non-profit organization focused on improving fish habitat and reducing sediment loading to the Yager and Van Duzen rivers through the implementation of improved land use practices.
After a decade of coordinated efforts, YES is interested in identifying pathways to integrate water quality and fish habitat monitoring data into assessments to determine whether progress is being made toward meeting established Total Maximum Daily Load’s.
Hollie Hall & Associates aided YES to:
1. Identify a restoration effectiveness monitoring strategy, and
2. Create a request for funds to impliment the restoration effectiveness monitoring strategy.
