2021 Large Wood Technical Field School

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 to Friday, November 12, 2021

SRF and Trout Unlimited will be producing a Large Wood Field School on the Mendocino Coast this November. This two-day field school will train forestry and restoration professionals in both engineered and non-engineered large wood augmentation techniques that have been proven effective in restoring stream habitats on the Northern California coast. Participants will learn how to effectively design and implement large wood restoration projects by learning how to identify geomorphic conditions of a treatment stream and select appropriate implementation methods to achieve desired results.

Registration fees do not include lodging which will be approximately $80 per night per person at Jughandle Farm depending on accommodations. To inquire or pay for lodging, please email info@calsalmon.org. SRF is not able to offer refunds for this course unless they are requested prior to October 15. After that time, we can transfer your registration fee but cannot offer a full refund. SRF is requesting that all attendees be vaccinated to attend this special event. Proof of vaccination or recent test results will be required.
