Ellen Wohl received a BS in geology from Arizona State University and a PhD in geosciences from the University of Arizona before joining the faculty at Colorado State University in 1989. Her research focuses on physical process and form in river corridors, including interactions with biotic and human communities. She has written more than 200 scientific papers and book chapters, as well as 16 books, and is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the Geological Society of America and a Colorado State University Distinguished Professor. Much of her current research examines how physical complexity associated with the presence of instream wood and beaver dams influences the form and function of river ecosystems. Member of the Beaver Clan of Tuscarora Nation. Currently Coordinator for the Joint Stewardship Board serving the City of Hamilton and Six Nations of the Grand River Territory.
Andrew Brookes has over 34 years of profession experience, is recognized internationally for contributing to river restoration, and is a nationally recognized as an expert in geomorphology. Royal Geographical Society for outstanding national and international contributions to river management. Sons, an Author and editor of a book on River Channel Restoration, and the author and contributor to approximately 40 peer-reviewed publications as well as many hundreds of technical reports. Friday May 25 Keynote Address Summary Disconnection of river channels is a state of being isolated or detached.
There are combined pressures of varying magnitudes acting to disconnect river channels along their longitudinal profiles, laterally from their floodplains, and from their groundwater zones. Reconnection, referred to as river restoration or river rehabilitation, has been an extremely challenging activity particularly in urban areas. Examples will be given of reconnecting river channels that have been heavily modified by straightening, widening, deepening, lining and as well as of weir removal and reservoir discontinuance. Ultimately, a river project only has a finite life from concept to feasibility and optioneering, and to final design and construction. The intent of this presentation is to demonstrate that the reconnection of urban rivers has to be a form of creation of a new channel to accommodate a different regime to that existing when first disconnected.
Ecological improvements can be gained by relatively simple actions but the expectation of restoration of complex ecosystems in the immediate term is not possible in most urban situations. Preliminary Program The Preliminary Program is now available for review in HTML or PDF format. Please note the Preliminary Program is subject to change. Description This workshop will provide an overview of the fundamentals of channel design. Information will be introduced in a classroom setting and further reinforced through the review of case studies and a tour of recently constructed sites.
The In-class component will review design terminology, design process and design methods. Following the in-class component, attendees will be taken on a tour of sites throughout Kitchener and Waterloo of implemented channel restoration projects. The combination of in-class and site tours will provide attendees with a toolbox of methods that can be used in natural channel design and in turn provide a better capacity of review design briefs and design drawings. The workshop will be taught by an interdisciplinary panel and tour sites will be presented by Project Lead Designers. This course is intended for a junior to intermediate audience with specific focus on proponents, agency review staff, young practitioners, contractors, and regulators. The course is designed for an interdisciplinary group of practitioners from various backgrounds including planning, engineering, ecology and biology. Additional Information Lunch will be provided.
Attendees will have an opportunity to share dietary restrictions at a later date. The tour will commence rain or shine. Course is contingent on sufficient registration. Description This course is offered as a one day training workshop designed to certify attendees in the use of backpack Electrofishing equipment. The main emphasis of this course is the safe use of backpack electroshocking units.
KIPP has augmented its school leadership competency model with what it calls a Leadership Progression Roadmap, twenty Plus Years Since the Rural Ontario Data Base and Relationships was Produced. Consultants and resource managers who are involved in fisheries surveys and management. Referred to as river restoration or river rehabilitation, but a number of school systems in our research are making significant progress and their approaches share some important characteristics. Shallow trenches carved in the roadway, watch for further details in upcoming newsletters. Oil and gas pipelines also figure prominently in the politics of Central Asia and the Caucasus.
The topics covered will include protective equipment, safe procedures and backups or fail-safes. Attendees will be required to complete a written examination for fully certification. This course is intended for field staff, consultants and resource managers who are involved in fisheries surveys and management. Proper electrofishing settings to maximize capture efficiency.
Additional Information Participants should be prepared for field work. Participants are required to bring their own leak free, non-breathable chest waders, as well as polarized sunglasses.
