Riparian and Watershed Assessment and Management

University of Nevada Cooperative Extension faculty work on an interagency and interdisciplinary cadre that puts on Riparian Proper Function Condition Assessment trainings and works with agencies and watershed groups to develop collaboration about riparian management.

Issue:

As the most biologically diverse and the most frequently overused component of Nevada rangelands, riparian areas have attracted a great deal of management attention. Generally, if riparian areas function properly, all land users will benefit and this provides a great vehicle for riparian restoration, including enhancement of water quality, habitat for listed or important species, forage for livestock, water for agriculture, etc. By focusing on the physical functioning of riparian areas, with proper management of uses within the potential and capability of individual settings, we strive to avoid the conflict of differing values. Cooperative Extension faculty work on an interagency and interdisciplinary cadre that puts on Riparian Proper Function Condition Assessment trainings and works with agencies and watershed groups to develop collaboration about riparian management.

This cadre is tied to other cadres in western states through the National Riparian Service Team of the Bureau of Land Management, U.S. Forest Service, and Natural Resources and Conservation Services. The Nevada Riparian Cadre teaches Riparian Proper Functioning Condition (PFC) Assessment. For Creeks and Communities, the cadre teaches classes and provides expert assistance with riparian assessment and collaborative management. Riparian Proper Functioning Condition Assessment is used as the minimum riparian assessment by the BLM and is recommended for watershed-wide assessments. It increases landowner and land manager interaction and cooperation under the themes of Cooperative Riparian Restoration and the national program, Creeks and Communities.
