Lentic and Lotic Riparian Assessment: A standardized approach
Monday, March 12, 10am-11am PST/11am-noon MST
Did you miss the lentic and lotic workshop in the Kootenays last summer? Did you attend and would like a refresher? Join Dr. Paul Hansen to learn about a set of tools for collecting standardized site inventories and for assessing functional health of riparian and wetland sites. Since 1988, Dr. Hansen and his team have worked with a large number of North American organizations in a collaborative effort to create standardized forms for lotic and lentic wetland assessment. Learn about each of the seven forms, which have corresponding user manuals with discussions on proper application and explicit itemized instructions for their use. The information from this work is used extensively in riparian and wetland mitigation throughout North America and in parts of Europe.
