16th Annual River Restoration Symposium: Call for Proposals


RRNW is pleased to announce that we will issue a Call for Session Proposals and Presentation Abstracts for our 16th Annual River Restoration Symposium at Skamania Lodge, Stevenson, Washington on February 7-9, 2017.
The intent of each Annual RRNW Symposium is to convene, share information, and foster dialogue on a multi-disciplinary approach to stream restoration and related watershed and river sciences, hence a broad range of speakers and topics is encouraged.  Our participants typically include restoration planners, designers, engineers, biologists, hydrologists, geomorphologists, regulators, scientists and land/resource managers. For 2017, we are highlighting the following featured topics:
Climate Change Adaptation in Restoration
Columbia River Treaty Implications
Klamath River Dam Removals 
Floodplain Functions Optimization
Landscape Architecture in Restoration Design 
Aquatic and Riparian Invasive Species
Tribal Restoration Interests, Issues and Efforts
The RRNW Symposium format is organized to encourage dialogue on pertinent topics that forward the practice and science of river restoration.  We feature a plenary format over the three-day program of invited speakers and accepted oral presentations, delivered in topically grouped sessions.  

Submittal deadlines will be on August 13, 2016 for session proposals and on September 10, 2016 for oral and poster abstract submissions.

Thank you for your interest in presenting at RRNW’s Annual River Restoration Symposium. If you have questions, please contact [email protected]
