How does The Partnership contribute to HBWI?
The Partnership is the primary convener of interests and we create a forum for coordination of actions affecting the community and addressing the ecological conditions in the basin. We are the organizers and the support organization for the Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative in assisting in implementation of the group's strategic action plan. The Partnership provides facilitation services, coordination and contract technical support for the coalition's partners, who are currently laying the groundwork for a multi-million dollar collaborative effort to control non-native carp and support long-term stewardship of flood-irrigated hay pastures that provide important migratory bird habitat in North America.
The Partnership is coordinating efforts to secure funding from the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board and USDA Farm Bill programs. We hope to expand the Partnership's capacity to bring together, coordinate, and facilitate the diverse array of state and federal land managers, private landowners, and conservation organizations to develop and implement comprehensive landscape scale plans and projects benefiting migratory birds at the flyway scale.
