National Wildlife Refuges (NWRs) and associated watersheds provide opportunities to manage and restore fishery, habitat, and other aquatic resources. Such opportunities may contribute to recovering listed species, lessening threats to imperiled species, and restoring aquatic habitats. The CRFPO is working with NWRs on aquatic resource issues and needs, such as monitoring and assessment of aquatic resources and habitat restoration projects, providing technical assistance on various aquatic issues, and participating on teams to develop NWR management plans. To assist in effective information exchange, the CRFPO hosts an annual workshop with NWRs to strengthen the working relationship among the Fisheries, Refuges, and other Service programs. Below are links to reports summarizing workshops.
