Pacific Salmon Habitat Restoration

Online

Throughout the Pacific Northwest and California, rivers that once sustained robust anadromous salmonid runs are now regulated, harnessed, or otherwise impacted by dams, diversions, channelization, watershed development and instream mining. Over the past 40 years, restoration projects in these regulated rivers have had mixed results, with many failing because of poor design or the setting of unobtainable goals.

This course is specifically designed for practitioners and agency personnel, including biologists, ecologists, hydrologists, engineers, planners and regulators involved with field data collection, detailed design and/or review of river restoration projects associated with salmonid stream habitat enhancement. Through group discussion and a review of case studies, you’ll learn tools to tackle restoration/rehabilitation design and monitoring, and the critical approach needed for assessing Pacific salmonid stream habitat. Topics addressed in this course include fundamental concepts in river function, habitat assessment, basic hydraulics, rehabilitation methods, fish passage and more. By the end of this course, you will possess a stronger understanding of salmonid habitat assessment restoration, and will be able to apply this knowledge to produce more successful outcomes in your restoration projects.

Section Notes

This is an online, remote learning course, which consists of content and curriculum that is taught with pre-recorded and real time lectures, in addition to a real-time Q&A session with the instructors. Pre-recorded lectures and live sessions are accessed via our Canvas learning system and Zoom. Details regarding login information will be emailed out prior to the course start date.

This course will be available on Canvas from July 19 - 23, 2021. Two live Zoom meetings will be held on Wednesday July 21, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT and Friday July 23, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM PDT. In the classroom environment, this course is equivalent to a two-day course.

We allow registration through the first morning of the course. It is expected that students review the prerecorded lectures before the live sessions in order to get the most value out of these meetings. We cannot extend course access beyond 11:59 PM on Friday 7/23, so students pursuing a late enrollment acknowledge that they will have less time to complete the materials.
