    Our Courses in Stream Management

    Recent trends in stream management stress holistic, ecosystem and watershed oriented approaches as long-term, cost-effective strategies and solutions for protecting and improving our water resources.  In response, Ecosystem Recovery Institute (ERI) has developed a series of seminars, workshops and training programs to provide an understanding and knowledge of the skills and techniques necessary for successful, effective stream work.

    Our workshops and seminars are designed to provide professional disciplines and nonprofessional stakeholders with an understanding of stream processes, values, protection and restoration.  Our courses emphasize the fundamental aspects of stream mechanics, natural channel geometry, stability concepts, and ecosystem approaches.  The programs are offered in a variety of formats - including lecture, classroom and field settings - which can be customized to meet specific audiences and educational needs.

    Below is list of courses we offer.  Descriptions for the courses can be found by following the link for each series to its own page.  Although the courses have pre-defined objectives and content, they can be customized to suit the needs of the audience.
