Meadow Creek Workshop Restoration, Research, Monitoring, and Evaluation April 2, 2014 at Eastern Oregon University, in La Grande, Oregon

Meadow Creek Restoration Workshop, Wednesday, April 2, 2014 at Eastern Oregon University, in La Grande, Oregon

RSVP: By Friday, February 21, 2014 at http://doodle.com/ir3hzr9d4z6qyiq9 (remote participation available)

Scientists and land managers from a variety of natural resource agencies and organizations will describe a multi-faceted project to monitor effects of riparian restoration and ungulate grazing on salmonids and their habitat. This innovative work takes place on Meadow Creek in the Starkey Experimental Forest and Range in northeastern Oregon. The project focuses on monitoring stream restoration, including a new livestock grazing system along Meadow Creek. A series of ungulate research exclosures will help distinguish effects of cattle vs. deer and elk browsing on planted seedlings, as well as how fish, fish habitat, and riparian vegetation respond to the restoration efforts. The speakers will introduce current and interested partners to the Meadow Creek restoration, research, monitoring, and evaluation project and obtain feedback to help guide this long-term project.
