Upper Brazos River

Conservation Plan

Conservation action plan and science agenda from stakeholder-led workshops

The Upper Brazos River NFCA planning was part of the Southern Great Plains Native Fish Conservation Area planning process - An interdisciplinary team of 45 fish and wildlife conservation professionals representing conservation non-profits, universities, state and federal agencies gathered for a series of conservation planning workshops in the early spring of 2016. Priority actions now provide the groundwork for a conservation action plan that will guide partner investments over the next 5-10 years in cooperative, watershed-scale conservation of native fishes and other aquatic resources in the Upper Brazos, Red, and Canadian rivers.

Brazos River Action Plan Summary

Three priority projects were identified at the workshop to address the primary stressors within the Brazos River of flow regime alteration, and habitat loss, and invasive species control and management.
