Setting Watershed-Scale Priorities in Riparian Restoration

Utah State University
October 24th, 2017 to October 25th, 2017
Tucson, AZ
The focus will be on ecosystems of the Lower Colorado River Basin.
 
Workshop Goals:
 
Describe tools and strategies that agencies and organizations can use in deciding where to work, what to do, and how to establish appropriate and achievable goals in riparian rehabilitation and restoration.
 
About the Workshop:
 
Decades of restoration efforts in the Colorado River basin have had varying success. With conservation dollars stretched thin, increasing regional temperature and variability in rainfall, and increasing demands on surface water, it is important to prioritize where to pursue restoration and what to do. 
 
The workshop will focus on restoration strategies and techniques being pursued in the Colorado River Basin, and obtain participant feedback on restoration goals, strategies, and techniques.  Decision-support tools that can aid participants in analytical prioritization will be introduced
