Long Term Monitoring
The NFJDWC conducts monitoring for a variety of projects. Our staff collect stream temperature, flow, and macroinvertebrate data as part of the Middle Fork of the John Day River IMW (Intensively Monitored Watershed). The NFJDWC has participated in this study since it began in 2008. Click here to learn more about the NFJDWC’s work on the IMW.
Other Surveys and Research
Our staff also monitors leafy spurge abundance on private lands to determine the effectiveness of chemical treatment and biological control. Leafy spurge is an invasive weed that is also toxic to cattle and horses. Additionally, the NFJDWC assists with fisheries surveys and deploys acoustic detectors in the spring and summer to monitor the presence of bird and bat species in the area.
