Originally recorded live, Sunday, January 17th

Join SYRCL and a panel of experts and stakeholders as we discuss what it takes to design and implement large-scale river restoration projects. You will be regaled with stories of perseverance, tales of unlikely relationships, and proof of a resilient Yuba River. Join our panelists as we talk about our experience identifying promising locations for restoration projects and working with private and government landowners. The panelists will also discuss working through the design process, collecting data, and developing scientifically rigorous monitoring protocols, and what goes into managing and monitoring construction at a project location.
