Description: This workshop will discuss the basic stream bank forces, selection and techniques of riparian planting that can make or break a successful riparian restoration project. We will discuss aquatic habitat needs and the influence vegetation has in providing quality habitat. Also covered will be the selection of the most appropriate plants, aquatic and terrestrial life preferences of vegetation, and the structure and composition of successful planting projects. Examples of implemented projects and techniques will be shown along with a discussion of lessons learned. After this morning session at the Boise Centre the class will conclude with an afternoon field trip to visit instream and riparian projects implemented on the Boise River in an urban setting. Transportation for the field trip will be provided. Presented by Jeanne McFall, PE, Roger Rosentreter, PhD, and final speaker TBD.
