Coming this Fall! Renewing Our Rivers: A Guidebook to Dryland Stream Corridor Restoration

February 11th, 2020
Renewing Our Rivers: A Guidebook to Dryland Stream Corridor Restoration will be published in the Fall of 2020!
Co-Editors: Mark K. Briggs (RiversEdge West) and W.R. Osterkamp (USGS, retired)
Written by stream restoration experts from Australia, Mexico and U.S., Renewing Our Rivers brings seasoned restoration practitioners to readers. The intended audience for ‘Renewing Our Rivers’ is broad and may best be described as public/community/natural resource managers and scientists/student leaders who want to initiate and potentially even lead an effort to bring back a damaged stream, yet who may not have stream restoration experience.
Renewing Our Rivers provides start-to-finish guidance, resources, lessons, and tools required to effectively bring back your favorite stream or river. The practices and principles that will help your project succeed will be applicable to flows and riparian corridors ranging from small ephemeral streams to larger rivers with significant year-round flows. Case studies throughout the guidebook underscore key lessons learned from stream restoration efforts in Australia, Mexico, and the U.S.
Renewing Our Rivers takes readers through the entire stream restoration journey from planning your stream restoration response to considering such important topics as climate change and environmental flow to implementing restoration tactics, monitoring results and developing long-term partnerships.
Renewing Our Rivers will be published here by the University of Arizona Press and ready for distribution in the Fall of 2020.
