Featured Workshop at the 2018 Conference 

Effectiveness Monitoring of Instream Restoration 
Restoration project types and techniques are constantly evolving as we learn more about fish and habitat response to various types of restoration. Physical and biological monitoring at an individual project and larger watershed scale is essential to understanding these relationships. The purpose of this workshop is to explore various restoration project effectiveness monitoring approaches and learn how project and watershed level physical and biological data are helping us evaluate these projects. In addition, this workshop will have a panel discussion that explores existing monitoring data and provides input on what data would be most useful to collect in the future to advance restoration effectiveness science.


Featured Tour at the 2018 Conference

Restoring Tidal Wetlands Field Tour
This tour will visit three project sites which embody inclusive strategies to balance restoration and working landscapes including the Wood Creek Aquatic Habitat Enhancement Project, the Martin Slough Enhancement Project and the White Slough Tidal Wetlands Restoration Project. The tour will include constructed tidal channels, large wood structures, various stages of restored and abundant tidal wetland habitat, a pasture actively undergoing restoration to balance high brackish marsh vegetation with agriculture use, and a hydraulically-based and large-scale tide gate.
