Spawning Habitat Restoration

Online

Many restoration projects in Central Valley streams and rivers have failed because their designs did not account for erosional and sediment transport processes. Designed for practitioners and agency personnel involved with field data collection, detailed design and/or review of river restoration projects, this course provides general training in design, implementation and monitoring of in-stream habitat improvement projects in regulated streams and rivers, with an emphasis on the issues surrounding salmonid spawning in California's Central Valley.

Students will learn techniques for assessing existing habitat and collecting and analyzing field data. Discover how to integrate physical, biological and aesthetic objectives into habitat improvement design; characterize and estimate sediment transport and budgets for enhancement sites; and design effective monitoring programs. Material selection, contracting procedures and data and project presentation will be covered. Examples of techniques will be provided from both successful and failed restoration projects. All students receive a comprehensive habitat restoration manual.

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. Please contact the course representative with any questions.
