Urban Stream Processes and Restoration Program

This training will focus on natural design processes for stream restoration projects. Materials delivered in the training will help attendees understand:
  • Urban stream functions,
  • Impacts of development on urban streams,
  • Recognize healthy versus degraded stream systems,
  • Assess and classify a stream using the Bank Erosion Hazard Index (BEHI), and
  • Comprehend differences between natural and traditional restoration techniques.

St. George, Utah Riparian Restoration and Tamarisk Beetle Workshop

Join us for a full classroom-style workshop on the 17th followed by a half day in the field on the 18th. Speakers will include experts in the tamarisk leaf beetle, invasive species removal, revegetation, permitting, endangered species, planning, monitoring, and all aspects of a successful and sustainable restoration project. The field day will include site visits to tamarisk beetle-impacted riparian areas that have been restored for the endangered southwestern willow flycatcher. The workshop will also provide numerous opportunities for networking. 

Recovery to Resilience Flood Tour

Join Water Education Colorado on September 18 for the 5th anniversary, full-day tour of the 2013 flood-affected zone along the Front Range (to begin and end in Loveland). Jump on the bus with lawmakers, water managers, attorneys, engineers and members of the public to get an up-close look at various recovery projects. Participants will learn about the initial actions that were taken to protect lives and property as well as the subsequent projects that were undertaken to recover and build resilience.

Riparian and Stream Ecosystems –Richland-Chambers Watershed

8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Affordable Tools in Riparian Restoration

This workshop will bring together NRCS conservationists and partners in Utah interested in how to use low-cost tools (mimicking natural processes) to restore riparian areas to benefit wildlife and working lands. Participants will come away with:

River Management Workshop

Workshop for White River riparian landowners and managers to learn about local, state, and federal resources available for river and riparian restoration. The first half of the day will focus on local river property management challenges and best management practices to alleviate them. There will be a session on funding opportunities for private landowners of riparian corridors. Then, we’ll have updates on White River planning and research efforts from local stakeholders over lunch, which will be provided to registrants.

Stream Investigation, Stabilization, and Design Course - Denver

Open to State & Federal employees only.

Colorado Department of Transportation is hosting a course called Stream Investigation, Stabilization, and Design. The course will be taught by a retired U.S. Army Corps of Engineers employee, Dave Derrick, who has spent his career studying and restoring rivers. Dave is now traveling the country teaching courses and working on stream restoration and stabilization projects. The 1st and 3rd days will be in the classroom, and the 2nd day will be in the field to a TBD project(s).
