scua-restoration-prioritiesOur Regional Catalyst for community-based natural resource management (Scott Harris) developed this report to share the results of a survey designed to help Sitkans identify community priorities for stream and forest restoration. The highest priority location identified through this effort was the Katlian watershed. Other places within the top 5 include Shelikof Creek and Nakwasina River. The survey also identified the values and activities that are most important to Sitkans when accessing public lands. Scott combined the best of what is available for watershed ecological assessments with the survey data to come up with a Strategic Plan for restoring the watershed that are important to people living, working, and playing in the Sitka Community Use Area.
