The Watershed Health Monitoring (WHM) program visits probabilistic (randomly-selected) sites and other hand-selected sites across Washington. We sample about 50 random sites within each of 7 Status and Trends Regions (STRs) during each round of sampling. Data in this file represent information collected during Round 1 probabulity sampling in the Upper Columbia STR (summer 2012) along with some other events from the region. Reported here are just a select few of the metrics. The full suite of habitat data is available from our web site: http://tinyurl.com/WatershedHealth. Macroinvertebrate community scores reported here are from this source: http://pugetsoundstreambenthos.org.
