Evolving Restoration Practices in an Era of Climate Change- The Intertwined History of Two Connected Watersheds

Saturday, May 8, 2021
10:00am - 1:00pm

Join Salmonid Restoration Federation and Sanctuary Forest for a Virtual Flow Enhancement and Restoration workshop to explore the evolving restoration in Redwood Creek and the Mattole. These two connected watersheds are intertwined historically, geologically, and from a fisheries recovery perspective. Restoration techniques and flow enhancement strategies have evolved to address climate change resilience and longer dry seasons. This workshop will be held via Zoom and will be available later as a video recording. Presentations include:
