2015 Grants


The Freshwater Trust

Grant Amount: $15,000
Project: Scalable Tools for Freshwater Restoration
Year: 2015
Location: Portland, OR
About:

Funding will enable the exploration of web-based platforms and standardized tools that will support the deployment of recently developed tools, protocols and methodologies that better account for the water quality impacts of land uses, model the restoration potential of improvement projects, prioritize projects with maximal environmental benefit, and monitor long-term results of completed projects.  These scalable tools will help to truly address the needs of our freshwater ecosystems on a timeline that matters by setting accurate and meaningful restoration goals, directing conservation resources to the projects that help us achieve these goals in the best possible way, and monitor and track long-term progress.  Project planning and monitoring activities are historically difficult to fund, as traditional restoration partners prefer to support more tangible, on-the-ground actions.
