Abstract/Description or Keywords The FORREX Watershed Management
Extension Program provides
extension services on topics that directly
or indirectly affect water resources in
terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
The goal of the program is to increase
understanding, and
application of innovative
knowledge and research
results. Identifying issues,
knowledge gaps, and
resulting extension needs
are critical elements
of the program’s
extension delivery.
Between 2007 and 2009,
three regional qualitative
studies (Northern
Interior, Southern
Interior, and Coast) were designed to
document important issues, research
gaps, and extension needs related to the
management of forested watersheds in
British Columbia (Redding et al. 2008;
Redding and Nickurak 2008; Redding
2011). The purpose of these assessments
was to gather respondent input to:
• assist in strategic planning for
the Watershed Management
Extension Program, and
• inform FORREX clients of the
information needs and knowledge
gaps identified by respondents.
This article summarizes the key
issues and information needs related
to watershed management in
British Columbia as expressed by
respondents to these surveys.
