1. Welcome and Agenda Review
2. Facilitated Watershed Council Self-Assessment: Led by Sharon Gray
There was only time during the time allotted for the self-assessment to work on Watershed Planning and Projects. During discussion the following points were brought forward: The need for benchmarks to evaluate success of projects. There is a need for clear goals, and a value-based mission statement. Is there unfinished business? Finally, the following three items were agreed upon by the group for further work:
Anne Taylor has a summary of the Salem-Keizer Watershed Assessment that she will share with the rest of the group.
3. Poster Project- Bob Roth
This project would sponsor a contest to find an image to represent the greater Salem-Keizer watershed area on a poster to be printed and distributed by the combined councils. This would be a project to raise money and awareness. Bob will write for a grant to cover the cost of producing the posters. Bob would like a person from each of the Salem area watershed councils to work on this project. Among other tasks, this group would run and jury the contest, address staffing at the Art Fair, and marketing of the poster.
4. Work Groups
There were too few people and too little time for this item on the agenda.
5. Old and New Business
Bob Roth- The greater SK Watershed councils applied to BPA for a Riparian Restoration grant. BPA refused all applications. Currently there is an EPA grant open. Bob will rework the application to the BPA and resubmit it to the EPA.
