Salmonid Restoration Federation

Salmonid Restoration Federation is hosting an Erosion and Sediment Control Field School. This technical field course is part of our Northern California Best Management Practices Education Series funded by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife’s Fisheries Restoration Grant Program. SRF is partnering with Pacific Watershed Associates, Five Counties Salmonid Conservation Program, and the Watershed Center to offer a technical workshop and field tour curriculum in Trinity County.

The event will be hosted at the beautiful Indian Creek Lodge ( on the Trinity River west of Weaverville.

The agenda is designed to assist planners, regulators, environmental scientists, engineers, and landowners to improve environmental protections by identifying, assessing, and ultimately designing erosion control projects. The workshop will include broad topics including:

  • Identifying sediment sources and quantifying erosion volumes
  • Evaluating sediment sources for their potential to deliver sediment to streams
  • Assessing environmental impacts from accelerated erosion and sediment delivery
  • Creating erosion control and prevention plans
  • Identifying high priority erosion and sediment control activities on post wildfire landscapes
  • Assessing, prioritizing, and estimating costs of post wildfire road treatments
  • Designing, procuring, and evaluating grading plans and permits
  • Environmental permitting application process and requirements

This course is limited to 35 people so please register and secure your lodge rooms early. The course is $200 for advanced registration for SRF members, or $250 for non-members or registration after May 30. Late registration for members is $225.
