This workshop is being co-hosted by the 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:

  • Urban stream functions,
  • Impacts of development on urban streams,
  • Recognize healthy versus degraded stream systems,
  • Assess and classify a stream using the Bank Erosion Hazard Index (BEHI), and
  • 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. Participants will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the training.
