"Stage 0" Floodplain Restoration on the Lower South Fork McKenzie River presented by Jared Weybright, Executive Director of the McKenzie Watershed Council, will be the focus of the February Science Pub. "Stage 0" refers to a relatively new approach to floodplain restoration that seeks to maximize floodplain connection at all flow conditions by removing artificially placed sediments (i.e. berms, historic roadbeds, etc.). This new and exciting project implementation method has been completed in a few locations throughout Oregon. Join us to learn about the benefits of landscape-scale restoration in delicate water systems.
The CFWWC hosts a family-friendly monthly public meeting series called the Coast Fork Science Pub on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 5-7pm at the Axe & Fiddle, 657 E. Main Street in Cottage Grove. The event begins with informal socializing, trivia, and updates about the watershed and watershed council during the first hour. The Science Pub presentation begins at 6pm. CFWWC receives 10% of all sales from the evening between 5-7:30pm. The event is free to the public, with a $5 donation suggested.
