An upcoming forest landowner workshop in Seaside will highlight best practices to restore and enhance fish habitat in forested streams.
The Oregon Forest Resources Institute has organized the free one-day workshop, scheduled for Oct. 27, in collaboration with various public and private partners. These include the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board, the Oregon Department of Forestry, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, Associated Oregon Loggers, the Oregon Small Woodland Association, Hancock Forest Management, the Oregon Forest Industries Council, Oregon State University and Greenwood Resources.
The workshop will provide technical assistance, tools and resources to guide landowners with fish habitat and passage projects. Half the day will be spent in the classroom, and the remainder in the field visiting recent fish passage and habitat projects.
The aim is to encourage more forest landowners to take on fish habitat restoration or passage. The workshop will help landowners get the information they need to start planning successful projects.
The North Coast Fish Passage and Habitat Workshop is scheduled for Oct. 27 in Seaside at the Seaside Civic and Convention Center, 415 First Ave. Registration is available here.
Both workshops will be held from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The deadline to register is Oct. 18.
