What is the Near Term Action Agenda?
The Near Term Action Agenda provides guidance for voluntary chinook salmon habitat conservation actions that local governments, businesses and community organizations can take now, while the Snohomish Basin Salmon Recovery Forum develops a long-term salmon conservation plan.
It includes guidance for: 1) Habitat protection and restoration, 2) Policies, programs and regulations, 3) Education and outreach, and 4) Research, monitoring and adaptive management.
The Forum encourages use of the Near Term Action Agenda by organizations and government agencies within the Snohomish River Basin.
The Action Agenda is based on the recommendations of the leading fish scientists working in the Snohomish River Basin. Although it emphasizes chinook salmon, activities described in the Action Agenda will benefit other salmon species as well.
