Stage Zero Restoration, Design and Implementation
Brian Cluer, NOAA Fisheries
Alluvial valleys historically supported well connected stream/floodplain systems that supported salmonids and other wildlife in robust and resilient ways. Land development and drainage schemes altered nearly every one of the former Stage 0 settings in the last century, collapsing habitat to minimums and making it unreliable. Restoring floodplain stream interaction in alluvial valleys has gained favor as an ecologically superior and perhaps necessary approach to salmonid recovery. This session is an opportunity for practitioners and scientists to present their floodplain research and restoration projects.
