insurmountable realities of limited funds. Principal among these are irretrievably developed lands and a large burgeoning human population. Adaptive management is a defined strategy to work within a complex framework of uncertainty and to chart a course through conflicting goals and incompatible expectations.

The first system-wide Monitoring and Assessment Plan (MAP) was developed over a number of years and issued in 2004. In 2006 a pilot effort to produce a System Status Report was completed. These initial efforts to assess the monitoring data provided lessons learned that were to be some of the causative factors for modifying the 2004-monitoring plan. In addition, it
