Two conferences next week (Sept. 25-29) will look at the law behind the Natural Resource Damage Program and the science of river restoration. The first is The Law of Ecosystem Restoration: National Policy Implications of the Clark Fork River Basin Natural Resource Damage Program. This conference will examine current NRD law and policy developments, as well as how this has played out in the Clark Fork River Basin.
The second conference, Assessing Stream Restoration Success: Developing Sustainable Ecological and Physical Systems, is hosted by the University of Montana’s Center for Riverine Science and Stream Re-naturalization. The two-day meeting will include daylong fieldtrips, four invited keynote presentations that address the physical, geochemical, and biological aspects of assessing stream restoration projects,
and a general poster session.
