With an emphasis on Innovative Approaches to Stream Stabilization and Restoration, including bioengineering & redirective methods
September 18-20, 2018
Lake Fort Smith State Park
Lodging is available in cabins or the lodge (all brand new) inside the park.
Workshop will be held in the lodge building.
This workshop will introduce the methodologies and procedures for initiating, planning, analyzing, and ultimately designing long-term sustainable river and stream stabilization, or rehabilitation projects. Innovative, environmentally sensitive, and cost-effective approaches to restoration will be discussed. Comprehensive case studies will be presented. Day 2 will include a class trip to a restoration project completed in 2017. And day 3 will include recon of a complex restoration site where the class will be divided into teams to develop conceptual restoration designs. Rain gear, boots, and field clothes are recommended for the field trips.
