2019 Courses and Workshops


Sediment Transport in Stream Restoration and Design

July 30-August 3, 2019. Cost: $1850, early bird if registered by June 1: $1600

This course is intended for those who wish to understand and apply the principles of sediment transport to alluvial channel assessment and design. Principles of open channel flow and sediment transport are combined with watershed-scale, hydrologic and sediment source analysis to place channel assessment and design in the appropriate context. Tools for estimating sediment supply at the watershed to reach level are applied in class exercises. Threshold and alluvial channel design methods are presented along with guidelines for assessing and incorporating uncertainty. The course balances advance reading, lecture, field work, and hands-on exercises for estimating sediment supply, calculating sediment transport rates, and forecasting channel response to water and sediment supply. This course is intended for participants who are familiar with basic principles of river geomorphology. Go to the course web page!

Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration of Riverscapes

October 9-11, 2019.   $1100. Early-bird discount , first 15 to register save $300 with promotional code "LTPBR_Logan_discount"

This workshop, hosted by Utah State University's Watershed Sciences Department and 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. Participation is open to everyone.

In this 2.5 day workshop, we will evaluate 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.
