Low-Tech PBR Workshops

Formats

We have taught over 20 workshops, short-courses and full semester long classes since 2010 on low-tech process-based restoration (see table below). There are a variety of ways in which we have offered this training:

  • University courses through Utah State University Department of Watershed Sciences for matriculated graudate students (e.g. WATS 5620, 5621, 5622, 5623, 5624, 6900, 6860) or professionals as continuing education units (CEUs; e.g. CEWA 5620, 5621, 5622, 5623, 5624, 6900 ) - tuition fee charged per unit
  • Short courses & workshops open to public enrollment administered through Utah State University Restoration Consortium - workshop fee charged
  • Custom short course for private audience - Virtual Workshops ([e.g. WLFW 2020]](/workshops/2020/SGI)) and In-Person Workshops (paid for by workshop sponsor(s))
  • Self-Paced Modules - Free

Note that Undergraduates in the Department of Watershed Sciences Management and Restoration of Aquatic Ecosystems Major get a full year of training on low-tech process-based restoration in the Capstone Classes (WATS 5340 & 5350).
