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