SRF Road Maintenance & Erosion Control Field School

October 13-16 2009, Garcia River


The Salmonid Restoration Federation, CA Department of Fish & Game and
Pacific Watershed Associates will offer a field school to learn techniques
to address culvert and road drainage practices as well as erosion control
techniques. This field school will be held at / <http://www.oz-farm.com/>
www.oz-farm.com/"> Oz Farm on the Garcia River. All meals and lodging are
included in the course fees. The curriculum includes conducting road
sediment assessments (problem identification and prescription development);
implementing fish-friendly road upgrading practices (stream crossing
upgrades and improved road drainage practices to protect water quality);
proper road decommissioning practices; road inspection, and maintenance
practices; erosion control and erosion prevention practices, and spoils
management. Throughout the course we will emphasize the concepts of making
our road systems as "hydrologically invisible" and as resilient to storm
events as possible. We will also focus on educating participants about how
best to address the root causes of observed erosion problems, through both
maintenance and repair practices at each potential work site. Please visit
