SRF & Cal-Neva AFS Second Call for Abstracts for Joint Salmonid Restoration
Session Coordinator Abstracts are due October 18

In 2010 the Salmonid Restoration Federation and the California-Nevada
American Fisheries Society chapter will co-host the 28th Annual Salmonid
Restoration Conference and the 44th Annual Cal-Neva AFS Conference in
Redding, California. We are truly excited about this new collaborative
effort. The first two days of the conference will be filled with symposia,
full-day workshops and field tours. A half-day plenary session will be
followed by 1.5 days of technical, biological, and policy-related concurrent
sessions. This conference will focus on a broad range of salmonid and
watershed restoration topics of concern to restoration practitioners,
watershed scientists, fisheries bioliogists, resource agency personnel,
land-use planners, and landowners. 
This year the conference will feature symposia on bionengineering techniques
and status of new conservation approaches to California fishes, workshops on
topics including floodplain restoration, water conservation and agricultural
planning, water quality and TMDLs, and storm water pollution runoff. All day
field tours will include tours of Clear Creek restoration, Lower Battle
Creek restoration projects, the Upper Trinity River, Shasta River, the
Sacramento River and a Redding tour that will highlight projects in Silver
Creek, Salt Creek, and Gravel Augmentation. 

Concurrent sessions include: 

*	Planning, Documenting, and Evaluating Fish Restoration Activities 
*	Anadromous Salmonid Monitoring 
*	Stream Channel Restoration 
*	Central Valley Salmonid Recovery Planning and Biological Opinions 
*	Marine and Estuarine Fisheries Research: Conservation and Management

SRF Roads 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/> 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 the  <http://calsalmon.org/> SRF
website to see the field school registration form or call (707) 923-7501.
