The Skagit Environmental Endowment Commission (SEEC) funds research and planning studies in environmental fields, along with education, extension, infrastructure, recreation and land acquisition programs. Proposals are evaluated in annual competitions for a total of approximately US$ 300,000 per year. The Commission is composed of primary and alternative commissioners appointed by the city of Seattle and the Province of British Columbia. The Commission is supported by staff from both the city and the province. Its scope is defined only by a geographic area -- the work must be conducted in the Skagit River watershed upstream of the Ross Dam. The multi-agency structure and broad scope has made it difficult to set priorities for evaluating proposals for environmental research and planning. To help focus future proposal evaluations, SEEC has started a 3-step process to: 1. Review past research funded by SEEC and other conservation biology research within the upper Skagit River watershed, 2. Identify knowledge gaps and research priorities for biodiversity and conservation biology in the upper Skagit, 3. Report on priorities and the broader role of SEEC in biodiversity and conservation work within the watershed.
