The theme of this year’s conference is “The Art and Science of Salmonid Restoration.”

See the SRF Newsletter for complete description and registration means.

The conference agenda will explore a range of issues including aging infrastructure, effectiveness monitoring, temperature impairments, biological responses, salmon reintroduction to historic habitats post-Klamath dam removal, streamflow enhancement and streamlined permitting, and ecological and policy issues that affect recovery.

Workshops topics will explore a range of watershed restoration techniques and approaches including: Using an optimization model to select fish passage barrier remediation; Devising instream flow criteria for small coastal  streams; Effectiveness monitoring of instream restoration projects; Identifying appropriate site-specific methods and target criteria for instream large wood restoration efforts; and Speaking of Science—a workshop about presentation  and facilitation skills.

Field tours will include a tour of Lower Klamath River tributaries, groundwater recharge projects in the Mattole headwaters, and flood reduction and habitat connectivity in the Lower Eel River and Salt River estuary. Additionally,
there will be a tour focused on restoring tidal wetlands with inclusive, processbased restoration in working landscapes;  and a tour of tidal, off-channel, instream, and upslope projects in the Humboldt Bay watershed.
