We have worked hard through the Utah State Univeresity Restoration Consortium and with our many partners to deliver training to diverse audiences on low-tech process-based restoration. If you are looking for training for yourself or a small group, try our publicly oferred courses. The next Low-Tech PBR Intro Workshop will be taught in Logan, Utah from October 9-11, 2019 and is set to follow the Restoring the West Conference. For USU students, check the registrar’s list of courses for current courses. If you want to develop a custom workshop for your own audiences, please contact us.
For participants of the SGI/NRCS/WLFW 2019 Low-Tech Riparian Restoration Field Workshop Series, see here for workshop materials.
Types of Training
We have taught over 25 workshops, short-courses and full semester long classes since 2010 on restoration. There are four ways in which we have offered this training:
- Semester-long courses through Utah State University Department of Watershed Sciences (WATS 6860 - Partnering with Beaver in Restoration Design and WATS 5340 & 5350 - Capstone Restoraton Design)
- Short courses & workshops open to public enrollment administered through Utah State University Restoration Consortium and/or Geospatial Consortium
- Bespoke short courses & workshops open to public enrollment administered by other sponsor (e.g. River Restoration Northwest)
- Custom short course for private audience and paid for by sponsor (e.g. NRCS, USFS, UDWR)
Migration In Progress
Note that most of our past workshop pages for low-tech are hosted on the old Partnering with Beaver in Restoration Design pages. We will be working on migrating that content to this site over the next 6 months. For now, for workshops from Spring of 2019 and prior, please refer to the old Partnering with Beaver in Restoration Design pages.
