THE CARMEL RIVER TASK FORCE
The Carmel River Task Force (CRTF) is a group that meets three times each year to discuss issues concerning the Carmel River Watershed and to prioritize the Action Plans to preserve and restore the watershed. The CRTF includes representatives from local, state, and federal agencies, from non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and individuals with a special interest in the watershed, such as researchers and graduate students. The Carmel River Watershed Conservancy and the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District collaborate to organize and host the CRTF meetings. The CRTF constitutes an exceptional opportunity for the watershed stakeholders to get together and learn about all the projects and programs that are taking place, and provides a unique platform for networking and collaboration. In addition, the CRTF is collaborating on a Watershed Report Card project that will track our progress in restoring the watershed and regularly report that progress to the public in an accessible format (see Reports on this website).
