This text was scanned from a handout at a Dec 6, 2018 partnership meeting at WWRP. The Goals and Objectives handout more specifically addresses aspects of the actual Westside Wildlife Corridor than the WWRP website does. [LINK]
See Goal 3, item 3! Perhaps someone to work with on this project.
1. Support partners' habitat enhancement projects across public and private land in the corridor.
2. Work with landowners to survey and treat highly invasive weeds and treat canopy weeds (ivy and/or clematis) on infested trees adjacent to natural areas.
3. Define what the corridor means for wildlife, communities, and human health. Identify the gaps we are trying to bridge to create a functional corridor.
4. Ensure access in the corridor for wildlife and people to clean water, by protecting water and managing stormwater impacts.
1. Support expansion of the WWRP network to include additional partners such as educational institutions, businesses, nonprofits, community groups, and agencies with shared values and interests in the corridor.
2. Recognize the different levels of capacity of partners, identify roles, and balance allocation of resources across the projects.
3. Maintain organizational funding to support a part-time coordinator and priority project actions.
4. Increase the awareness of the WWRP as a conservation partner in larger Willamette River conservation initiatives.
1. Develop ways that community members can identify themselves as part of the corridor and identify ways that people can participate in improving the corridor.
2. Organize habitat enhancement and monitoring information to be a resource for partners and for the public.
3. Promote an understanding of the multiple objectives for the corridor including wildlife habitat, recreation opportunities, community connection, and natural area protection.
