SRF Conference FAQs
Featured SRF Conference Workshop:
Restoration Approaches to Instream Large Wood Augmentation
Due to the important role of large wood in restoring and maintaining instream salmonid habitats, wood augmentation has become a common element in stream restoration. Given the frequency and intensity of instream large wood restoration efforts in California over the last several decades, restoration practitioners and agencies alike have learned a great deal about the success and applicability (or lack thereof) of a wide variety of large wood implementation methods. To help improve the efficacy of these types of projects, and to help identify when and where specific application of these methods may be the most appropriate, it is important for restoration practitioners to communicate their lessons learned and experiences with one another. This workshop will focus on presenting several instream large wood implementation methods and techniques, followed by a discussion of where and when it is best to apply specific methods.
