We'll start the day with talks on topics including using animal behavior to inform riparian ecosystem conservation, bird and frog habitat in the Verde River Basin, riparian vegetation response to changing climate conditions and implications for tribal restoration policies, and riparian restoration in the Colorado River Delta.

In the afternoon we will visit the Tohono O’odham Nation, Wa:k Hikdan Riparian Restoration Site, where we'll learn about the ongoing restoration work in the San Xavier District.

RiversEdge West Workshop Background:

RiversEdge West (REW) has been conducting riparian restoration conferences and workshops since 2001. This year, we are hosting a workshop series across the Southwest with the goal of connecting the people managing riparian lands with the techniques, scientific findings, and lessons learned that are vital to ensuring that restoration is successful. These focused and place-based workshops will provide a venue for education, collaboration, and training that address the needs of a particular region.
