Forest Service Workshop On Aquatic Organism Road-Stream Passage Nov. 16-20

The U.S. Forest Service and its partners will host a workshop November 16029 in State College providing training on a Stream Simulation Design Approach for Providing Aquatic Organism Passage at Road-Stream Crossings.
This 4.5 day workshop will teach participants the necessary skills to design road-stream crossing structures that provide unimpeded fish and other aquatic organism passage through the structure, restore natural channel characteristics and fluvial processes through the structure, and maximize the long-term stability of the structure.
Other partners in presenting this workshop are: National AOP Design Cadre, Eastern Regional Office, Allegheny National Forest; USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service; Trout Unlimited; and The Nature Conservancy.
