Stream Health & Restoration Workshops

Diagnosing Streams graphic

  The foundation of these workshops is to:

  • teach the fundamentals of stream science including: fluvial geomorphology, hydrology, connectivity, biology, and water quality and
  • educate attendees in natural channel design techniques and approaches that ensure long-term health and stability.

 Summer 2015 we offered the following two workshops:

  • The Fundamentals of Stream Restoration: Applied Geomorphology & Ecology, July 13-17 in Fergus Falls MN
  • Diagnosing Streams: Symptoms, Underlying Causes, & Remedies, September 14-16 in Fergus Falls MN

 Summer 2016 workshop offerings will be determined in January 2016.
