Cooperative Monitoring, Evaluation and Research Committee
The Cooperative Monitoring, Evaluation and Research Committee (CMER) of the Timber, Fish and Wildlife Program conducts applied research in support of adaptive management of the Forests and Fish Agreement. This agreement, which governs forestry practices on most private and state lands in Washington State, was signed into law in 1999. It was designed to meet the requirements of the federal Clean Water Act and the Endangered Species Act for fish and several stream-associated amphibians.
