Publication Community Watershed Snapshot Guidebook

Abstract: Hawaii Conservation Alliance's Community Watershed Snapshot Project is a first step to understanding, analyzing and addressing humanity's relationship with its environment as part of the solution to taking care of Hawai`i. The Community Watershed Snapshot Project is a participatory and collaborative process to answer the burning question, “How healthy is your ahupua`a (watershed)?” Completing the snapshots gave our communities the opportunity to produce game plans aimed at improving ridge-to-reef ecosystems by addressing some of the priority issues that currently exist. Through this snapshot process and cooperatively developed communications tools (poster, fact sheet with infographics and PowerPoint presentation), we have a greater ability to proceed on watershed scale resource management as a unified community.
