excerpt from above:
Quote:
Abstract
Water from forested watersheds provides irreplaceable habitat for aquatic and riparian species and supports our homes, farms, industries, and energy production. Secure, high-quality water from forests is fundamental to our prosperity and our stewardship responsibility. Yet population pressures, land uses, and rapid climate change combine to seriously threaten these waters and the resilience of watersheds in most places. Forest land managers are expected to anticipate and respond to these threats and steward forested watersheds to ensure the sustained protection and provision of water and the services it provides.

Effective, constructive watershed stewardship requires that we think, collaborate, and act. We think to understand the values at risk and how watersheds can remain resilient, and we support our thinking with knowledge sharing and planning. We collaborate to develop common understandings and goals for watersheds and a robust, durable capacity for response that includes all stakeholders and is guided by science. We act to secure and steward resilient watersheds that will continue to provide crucial habitats and water supplies in the coming century by implementing practices that protect, maintain, and restore watershed processes and services.
