Session Description

Session 2.1.A: Habitat Restoration

Thursday 5 April 2018 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM, Location: 613

Session Chair: Richard Childers, Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (United States)

Nearshore marine and riparian zone restoration efforts throughout the Salish Sea are a crucial component for the recovery, preservation, and ecological linkage of marine fish, shellfish, and wildlife habitats. Habitat degradation from shoreline armoring, inadequate culverts and urban development have detrimental impacts on the survival of salmonids and forage fish as well as limiting vegetation diversity. Well designed and planned restoration projects can repair disturbed marine and riparian habitat and facilitate increased overall biodiversity. Presentations in This session addressed restoration site selection, planning and design considerations, pre and post restoration modeling and monitoring, and methods to evaluate the overall ecological function of plant and animal communities at restoration sites.
