Tour Theme:  Integrated Watershed Restoration Management and Supporting Research

Land managers continue to expand the type, extent, and intensity of restoration activities in upland and riparian systems on public and private lands throughout the western U.S. Restoration is designed to mitigate a diverse set of legacy conditions; these include highly uncharacteristic fuel loadings in upland forests, widespread invasion of exotic vegetation in grasslands and shrublands, and long-term loss of stream and riparian hydrologic functions, all of which severely hinder production and delivery of ecosystem services of critical social and ecological importance. The tour will (1) share results from long-term upland forest and stream-riparian restoration research evaluating effects on multiple-use management; (2) highlight new technologies and planned restoration that have great potential to make meaningful landscape-scale differences in desired outcomes; and (3) discuss the degree to which comprehensive, whole-watershed restoration approaches can be designed and implemented in practical ways to best serve multiple-use objectives.
