2024 RRNW Symposium
February 5-9, 2024
Join us for the 22nd annual symposium in Skamania, WA. Abstracts and Session proposals are currently being accepted at: https://www.rrnw.org/symposium-call/
VIRTUAL SHORT COURSE
The main objective of this short course is to develop the skills and knowledge needed to undertake simple remote sensing analyses of any riparian zones. In order to practice using remote sensing tools, we will work through case studies that focus on identifying and monitoring the impacts of beaver activity within riparian zones in the western US.
This workshop will guide participants through the process of finding and analyzing several types of publicly available remote sensing data, and then explore how that data can be used to monitor ecohydrologic changes in riparian corridors over space and time. After learning the basics of riparian remote sensing, we will practice in a case study of how beaver activity affected the climate resilience of riparian zones.
APRIL 5TH FROM 5PM TO 9PM
We are back!! Please join us at Lucky Lab Brewery in Portland for our first post-covid speaker series on Wednesday, April 5th from 5 to 9pm. The event is free to attend! Arrive between 5 and 6pm to buy pizza and drinks and mingle. The speaker begins at 6pm.

2023 RRNW SYMPOSIUM
FEBRUARY 6-10, 2023
The 21st annual RRNW symposium was held in Skamania, WA with a diverse and interesting array of sessions and invited speakers. Highlights include a full day dedicated to the idea of Restoration as Resilience and a special session on charismatic mega-flora (cottonwoods!). We also had fantastic talks from our invited speakers covering climate change impacts on PNW rivers, the slow water movement, and learning from indigenous connections to the land. This symposium also included a special message from NPS director Chuck Sams. For archived presentations visit our presentation portal. The digital binder for the symposium can be viewed here.
