Furthering adaptation coordination and planning for species and ecosystems in the transboundary Cascadia landscape, and assessing contribution of eDNA to monitoring priority species and climate indicators in two Cascadia watersheds.

The Cascadia Partner Forum fosters a network of natural resource practitioners working with the Great Northern and North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperatives to build the adaptive capacity of the landscape and species living within it. This project will begin a pilot effort to asses contribution of eDNA in the Upper Skagit in Washington and British Columbia and the Bridge watershed in British Columbia in the St’at’imc First Nations territory both watersheds would utilized eDNA sampling to detect the presence of bull trout (apriority species for the Cascadia Partner Forum) and select a second aquatic system species of current management importance with current or longer term climate implications to management questions.
