2023 River Restoration Symposium:

February 6 - 10th

Short Courses on Monday February 6th
Field Trip on Friday February 10th

WELCOME!

We are happy to announce the 21st annual River Restoration Northwest Symposium!

With such a strong show of enthusiasm from our diverse restoration community, we are pleased to provide a program that reflects this ever-evolving field of practice. 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.

After several years of holding the Symposium registration rates and annual membership dues unchanged, we needed to increase the rates in response to the steadily increasing operational expenses of the event. As always, we strive to keep the RRNW events affordable to maximize participation from the growing river restoration community. We greatly appreciate RRNW’s amazing sponsors for their ongoing support which helps keep event registration costs affordable. Finally, we encourage everyone to spread the word about taking advantage of RRNW’s student internship and Klingeman Professional Stipend Fund programs offered to help cover Symposium registration costs.

2023 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.
