ABOUT STREAM REHABILITATION

The intent of Trout Unlimited Canada’s Stream Rehabilitation Training Program is to provide up-to-date information on the science and best practices of rehabilitating stream ecosystems and their associated watersheds. The workshops are designed for both conservation volunteers and environmental professionals that wish to learn and implement successful rehabilitation projects. This series of workshops guides students through an understanding of watershed and stream ecosystems, assessment and monitoring, rehabilitation planning, and implementation.

The course trainers represent practitioners with many years of on-the-ground experience in the science and practice of stream rehabilitation. The workshops need to be taken sequentially and certificates of completion are issued through Trout Unlimited Canada and the School of Environmental Design and Rural Development at the University of Guelph. TUC is also designing a mentorship and resource portal for students that have completed the series of workshops in order to ensure ongoing help so that what the students learn is put into practice.

One of the key intents of the training program is the creation of a community of practice that supports its members and advances the application of science-based watershed and stream rehabilitation. TUC’s goal is to provide the most current science and training for those that care for their local watersheds and streams. We believe that the Stream Rehabilitation: From Form to Function Workshop series, is a major step in that direction.

Trout Unlimited Canada wishes to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation for their support of our Stream Rehabilitation Training programs.
