Effectiveness Monitoring Program At-A-Glance Willamette Valley Wetland Assessment and Effectiveness Monitoring Results from the latest effectiveness monitoring indicate: Preparing for aquatic insect sampling Enhanced wetlands contain more open water and for a longer time period compared to natural wetlands. Currently, data does not suggest that restored wetlands are functioning better or worse compared to natural wetlands. A few lessons from this effectiveness monitoring are: Recording field data Various levels of monitoring intensity used to describe wetland condition correlate INDICATOR LEGEND well in some cases with one another. Aquatic insect communities varied greatly between years which prevents the completion of a robust Index of Invertebrate Biological Integrity at this time. How will OWEB use this information: OWEB will further develop and refine methods tested in this project and may identify a network of wetland monitoring sites in other parts of Oregon. Results will be shared on Oregon Wetlands Explorer and other groups interested in wetland restoration and monitoring.
