               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.
