Stream Restoration Partnership

The Oregon Solutions Stream Restoration Partnership Project, sponsored by The Freshwater Trust and the Department of State Lands, was designed with the goal of making private land restoration easier on a landscape scale and at an accelerated pace that promotes the quality conservation outcomes needed to attain watershed health in a meaningful time frame.


The desired outcomes of bringing efficiencies to restoration projects included:

  • comprehensive advancement of needed project development elements
  • improved, timely permitting processes for voluntary restoration projects
  • more efficient movement of restoration dollars to the ground
  • improved ability to focus time on landowner outreach and project development instead of paperwork
  • greater ecological and local economic benefit from this work through increased scale of actions
  • greater landowner interest in restoration
