    DNR Kelp Monitoring and Management: Much of the eelgrass data generated by the Northwest Straits Initiative is provided to the Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the state agency charged with monitoring status and trends of eelgrass and kelp species in support for nearshore habitat management. In recent months several MRCs have expressed interest in engaging in kelp preservation and recovery; a natural evolution from more than a decade of eelgrass surveys and protection. This presentation will provide an overview of the kelp monitoring efforts and observations by DNR, the new Washington Vegetative Habitat Atlas, and highlights of the agency’s findings in Puget Sound.

    Helen Berry maps and monitors intertidal and subtidal habitats for the Nearshore Habitat Program in the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Current projects include long-term monitoring of canopy-forming kelp, changes in nearshore vegetation in response to Elwha Dam removal, development of a Marine Vegetation Atlas, and intertidal biotic community monitoring. Her other work includes eelgrass monitoring, vegetation surveys using a variety of techniques, and administrative management of the Nearshore Habitat Program. Helen has worked with DNR since 1995, and holds an M.S. in Oceanography from Oregon State University.
