Streams and rivers serve many purposes, including water supply, wildlife habitat, energy generation, transportation and recreation. A stream is a dynamic, complex system that includes not only the active channel but also the floodplain and the vegetation along its edges.
This course will outline the process of stream restoration: the re-establishment of the general structure, function and natural self-sustaining behavior of the stream system that existed prior to disturbance. It is intended primarily as a reference for natural resource professionals who plan, design, review and implement stream-restoration projects. It is important to recognize that all stream restoration projects are different and require applications of specific techniques to meet project objectives.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
