Event description
Low-Tech Process-Based Restoration workshop to be held October 9-11 in Logan Utah

About this Event

This workshop, hosted by Utah State University's Watershed Sciences Department and Restoration Consortium, will bring together partners interested in low-tech alternatives for restoring streams and associated riparian and mesic habitats to benefit wildlife and working lands. Participation is open to everyone.

In this 2.5 day workshop, we will evaluate cost-effective, low-risk techniques that can be implemented at large scales to meet mesic habitat restoration goals including: partnering with beaver, beaver dam analogues (BDAs), post-assisted log structures (PALS), and other simple hand-built structures designed to facilitate process-based restoration.

Participants will gain:

1. An appreciation of beaver ecology and the complex feedbacks between beaver activity, hydrogeomorphic responses, riparian vegetation and ecology;

2. Exposure to a variety of low-tech recipes, such as BDAs, for addressing specific impairments using a process-based restoration philosophy;

3. Introduction to considerations in planning, permitting, design and building such restoration projects;

4. Knowledge of how to use adaptive management in managing expectations about beaver as a restoration agent and/or nuisance impacts;

5. First-hand experience designing and building BDAs and other structures; A network of practitioners to share perspectives and lessons learned.

Get the most out of your trip to Logan! Make it a full week:

This year's event dovetails with the annual Restoring the West Conference (2019), also in Logan. The Restoring the West Conference is focused this year on 'Managing Water by Managing Land' . Restoring the West attendees that also attend the Low Tech Process-based Restoration of Riverscapes workshop (Oct. 9-11) will receive $150 discount off their LTPBR workshop registration.
