Event Description:
This workshop is being co-hosted by the Texas Tech Llano River Field Station, Texas A&M AgriLife and the Texas Water Resources Institute. The training will focus on natural design processes for stream restoration projects. Materials delivered in the training will help attendees understand:

  • comprehend differences between natural and traditional restoration techniques

Information including the hydrologic cycle, basics to stream morphology, stream classification, stream instability, stream restoration, stabilization structure, vegetation, and monitoring and evaluation will be explained through classroom-style teaching in the morning session and hands-on activities in the field at a nearby stream in the afternoon sessions.

Dress is casual and comfortable, hip boots/waders are required for the hands-on field assessment as we will be out in the creek in the afternoon.
