Featured SRF Conference Workshop:
Beaver and Wood

The scale and severity of river impairment globally cannot be meaningfully addressed solely using traditional hard-engineering restoration approaches. This workshop will be an opportunity to share recent developments in the evolving science and practice of low-tech process-based restoration (LTPBR) of riverscapes.

Featured SRF Conference Tour:

The tour will focus on the lower portion of the Carmel River watershed where the Rancho Cañada Golf Course is being removed and restoration of the site for public access, parklands, and river restoration are being planned.
