What topics will be covered at the workshop?

Morning classroom portion will include: a panel on riparian restoration for habitat improvement (birds, fish, & bees - oh my!), a presentation on site prioritization across landscapes, and small group discussions on community engagement on collaborative projects.

The afternoon at Waterfall Ranch will begin with a catered lunch and be followed by: visiting active and successful restoration sites and a hands-on demonstration of willow-matting.
