From 12pm until 1pm
At Nature Learning Center, Albany
Streams and riparian areas are dynamic, and change dramatically over decades and centuries. Research in the last thirty years has shed light on the interconnected nature of streams and riparian areas, documenting that riparian zones are indeed an integral part of stream ecosystems. Much of that research has demonstrated the importance of wood in streams to fish habitat and nutrient cycling, and emerging information on the role of light on the productivity of stream ecosystems. Come learn about research from New Hampshire and beyond on fish habitat and in-stream wood, and what we may expect in our streams in the coming decades as forests age. As well as several stream restoration projects that use our knowledge of stream and riparian processes to help stream ecosystems become healthy again.
