Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration of Riverscapes

CEWA 6900 / WATS 6900 - 1 cr.


This workshop, hosted by Utah State University Restoration Consortium, will bring together partners interested in low-tech alternatives for restoring streams and associated riparian and mesic habitats to benefit wildlife and working lands. 

In this 2.5 day workshop, you will be introduced to the principles underlying low-tech process-based restoration of riverscapes. You will get introduced to planning, design and construction of cost-effective, low-risk techniques that can be implemented at large scales to meet mesic habitat restoration goals including: partnering with beaver, beaver dam analogues (BDAs), post-assisted log structures (PALS), and other simple hand-built structures designed to facilitate process-based restoration.
