Restoration of Streams & Riparian Areas
for Stabilization and Ecological Function.
This program features two days of information sharing with two restoration experts and a full day of site visits to four different project sites: two completed sites and two in development.
Attendees will learn (1) innovative bank protection methods and how to choose the appropriate method or combination of techniques, (2) understand the stream and associated riparian area as a complex inter-related system that encompasses both local and system-wide processes and problems, (3) learn how to read a stream and analyze a streambank erosion problem with an experienced practitioner, and (4) learn about the ecology, restoration and management of riparian areas.
This workshop includes site visits to two Dam Project locations that were completed August 2008. See how these projects look just one year later, what worked and what didn?t. Attendees will also be involved in the development of two potential future projects for PCS. Lectures will given by several project partners, but the primary program will be presented by Dave Derrick and Rich Fischer both from the US Army Corps of Engineers, Engineer Research and Development Center.
