Monitoring in the PNW

The 11th annual stream restoration symposium hosted by River Restoration Northwest boasts four days of short courses, lectures, presentations, and other activities to promote responsible practices in the design of river restoration projects. Stillwater ecologist Dr. Jody Lando and geologist Dr. Derek Booth will co-teach a short course on Monday, January 30 titled “Monitoring principles, design, and techniques for rivers and streams in disturbed watersheds of the PNW.” Specifically, Jody and Derek will explore the various dimensions associated with the monitoring of natural rivers and streams in both natural and more urban environments, with a focus on the design of useful, coherent monitoring programs with applicability towards resource-management decisions.

In addition, Liz Gilliam will be presenting her poster on four years of monitoring following gravel augmentation on the lower Deschutes River as part of Session 6 on Wednesday, February 1. Liz’s co-authors include geomorphologist and GIS specialist Ian Pryor, as well as biologist Robert Spateholts of Portland General Electric.
