2021 Large Wood Technical Field School

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

SRF and Trout Unlimited will produced a Large Wood Field School on the Mendocino Coast in November 2022. This two-day field school trained 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.
