Harney Basin Wetlands Initiative

OC is working with local landowners, non-governmental organizations, and federal and state agencies to design and implement a collaborative effort to combat invasive carp and preserve important bird habitats throughout the Harney Basin in southeast Oregon. Initial goals of the project are to improve the health of wetlands under the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge’s comprehensive conservation plan, to maintain traditional flood irrigation practices on private lands, and to improve riverine and riparian habitats.
