In 2003, Marys River Watershed Council developed an Action Plan to prioritize conservation action across the watershed.  Although it was superceded by the Marys River Model Watershed Proposal and Action Plan (2010) and an organizational Strategic Plan (2011), the 2003 document still contains relevant information.The Cutthroat Trout Habitat Suitability Index (Map 1) was especially important; it has determined the priority order in which we have addressed sub-basin rapid bio-assessments and restoration action.
