John, David Derrick, the IECA and Shasta College have been working on presenting this for a long time, and now we confirmed that all is a go. And we couldn't be more excited about it. Here's the deal...
If you are passionate about Stream Restoration than you do NOT want to miss this!
- 3-days of classroom and in-field instruction at the Shasta College Campus
- 2 experienced instructors will provide valuable instruction backed by years of practical experience. Your instructors for this event will be the Stream Dream Team of John McCullah (read about him here) and David Derrick (read about him here).
- Learn to "Read a Stream" from David Derrick, Vicksburg MS. David travels 230+ days a year visiting streams, teaching, designing, and implementing projects!!
- Learn the MOST Environmentally-Sensitive Streambank Stabilization and Biotechnical Techniques from John McCullah. These are the newest techniques out there. We're not going to cover the old stuff.
