The purpose of this project was to develop watershed specific sustainable forest management indicators and associated monitoring protocols for the 68 identified watersheds within the Bulkley TSA. The project was driven by the analyses of these identified watersheds and has three primary objectives. 1. To establish a priority ranking of the watersheds within the Bulkley TSA relative to specific monitoring requirements. 2. To identify the specific indicators for each watershed on which monitoring energies will be focused. 3. To develop a first approximation of the monitoring protocols (required to evaluate specific watershed indicators). The establishment of watershed rankings and the identification of specific indicators was facilitated through answering a comprehensive set of questions developed by the Bulkley TSA Aquatic Resources Committee.
