Webinar – STREAM Users – Featured Case Studies
Thursday, April 29 10am-11am PT/11am-12pm MT/1pm-2pm ET
- This webinar will provide case study examples of participants in the STREAM project that are utilizing the CABIN methods in a local context on the west and east slopes of the Rocky Mountains.
- The Elk River Alliance has been using CABIN since 2012 to inform restoration efforts and identify Elk River tributaries impacted by land-use activities, including mining, logging and residential development. In 2020 ERA trialled STREAM protocols to better understand habitat health. ERA is working to collaborate with industry groups to develop data-sharing agreements and centralize monitoring efforts to better understand and sustainably manage the Elk River watershed (Kaileigh McCallum).
- The Oldman Watershed Council has been a STREAM participant since Year 1 of the project and will share their restoration monitoring efforts in their headwaters on the Eastern slopes of the Canadian Rockies, where they have been restoring stream banks together with partners and volunteers (Sofie Forsstrom).
- The Ghost Watershed Alliance Society (GWAS) will share about how they’re using the STREAM project to fulfill the Ghost Watershed State of the Watershed Report recommendations while addressing concerns due to increased land use practices, specifically sedimentation and how the project is assisting GWAS with identifying priority sites for future restoration efforts (Cal Hill).
- This webinar will also feature how the STREAM project is being applied in a wetland context (Darcie Quamme).
