Overview

Each year RRNW hosts researchers, scientists and field professionals from the Pacific Northwest and beyond to share knowledge and collaborate on the latest in River Restoration practices and research. This unique event seeks to share knowledge across disciplines and takes a holistic approach to river restoration at a one of a kind location with breathtaking views of the Columbia Gorge. Networking is a key component of the symposium with participants having plenty of time to collaborate and be inspired.

The intent of the Symposium is to convene, share information, and foster dialogue with a multi-disciplinary approach to stream restoration and related watershed and river sciences, hence a broad range of speakers and topics is encouraged.

Conference participants typically include restoration planners, designers, engineers, biologists, hydrologists, geomorphologists, regulators, scientists and land/resource managers.

2022 LOCATION - SKAMANIA LODGE

"Skamania" is the Chinook Indian word for "swift water". The Columbia River Gorge hotel is aptly named, as it overlooks the majestic Columbia River that divides Oregon and Washington. There are also over 70 waterfalls nearby, including the famous Multnomah Falls, which at 620 feet, is the fifth highest waterfall in the United States. 45 minutes from Portland, the lodge offers 258 guest rooms, a 22,000 square foot conference and event center, an 18-hole, par 70 golf course, spa and fitness center. The fitness center includes two Peloton bikes, top of the line Precor fitness equipment, an indoor heated swimming pool, dry saunas and indoor and outdoor whirlpools. Adjacent to the lodge is a fitness course, volleyball and hiking trails.
