Salmon River Watershed Natural Resources Assessment

Salmon River Watershed Resources Assessment

The objective of the Salmon River Watershed Natural Resources Assessment is to develop a report that highlights the significant natural resources of the area and can be used to guide local planning efforts, DEC management, and individual land use decisions. A diverse partnership of organizations have come together to complete this study for the 173,000-acre Salmon River watershed in Oswego, Lewis, Jefferson, and Oneida Counties. The partnership currently includes:

New York State Department of Environmental Conservation

New York Natural Heritage Program
New York Sea Grant
Tug Hill Tomorrow Land Trust
Oswego County Environmental Management Council
S.U.N.Y. Oswego
S.U.N.Y. College of Environmental Science and Forestry
