Stream restoration short course
Are you dealing with bank erosion issues; riparian management; trying to reduce catchment sediment sources? Then this course could be for you...
Dr Andrew Brooks, (Australian Rivers Institute) together with Dr Andrew Simons (USDA National Sedimentation Lab) and Professor Jon Olley (Australian Rivers Institute) are joining with Reef Catchments and the Healthy Waterways Alliance Mackay Whitsunday Isaac in offering this unique workshop program for water management and NRM professionals.
During this 5 day intensive course participants will expand their knowledge on the theory and practice of streambank erosion assessment and treatment techniques; the fundamentals of channel adjustment in disturbed streams and apply the BSTEM bank stability model as well as the design and construction of engineered log jams (ELJs).
There will also be a full day module on the application and limitations of catchment scale sediment budgets, including the theories that underpin the SedNet model, plus the ins and outs of sediment tracing and how it can shed light on catchment sediment sources.
“This is an excellent opportunity to learn from three international experts in river restoration in a small workshop environment,” said Sal Gray, Reef Catchments Healthy Waterways Coordinator. “It will also be a unique chance to network with colleagues from around the country in a relaxed setting by a beautiful Whitsunday Coast beach!”
