The Wild Utah Project and numerous partners, including veteran riparian scientist Dr. Peter Stacey from the University of New Mexico, have developed a tool that identifies streams that do, and do not, meet wildlife needs. The Rapid Stream Riparian Assessment protocol (RSRA), uses a series of simple but scientifically-based indicators to measure how much the stream system differs from what would be found in a reference stream. It incorporates an easy to understand scoring system that can be repeated in different locations by volunteers with some training. Wild Utah Project is now combining the forces of Citizen Activists, scientists and land management agency staff for the larger purpose of public and private land stream assessment and restoration in a way that has never been done before.
