Stream Rehabilitation Training

Trout Unlimited Canada’s Stream Rehabilitation Training Program provides up-to-date information on the sciences and best practices of rehabilitating stream ecosystems and their associated watersheds. The six workshops are designed for both conservation volunteers and environmental professionals that wish to learn and implement successful rehabilitation projects. This series of workshops guide students through an understanding of watershed and stream ecosystems, assessment and monitoring, rehabilitation planning, and finally implementation. Please download our Syllabus for more details.

The course is taught through professionals with many years of on-the-ground experience. TUC is also designing a mentorship and resource portal for students that have completed the program to offer ongoing advice, assistance, and collaborations so that students can put into practice the lessons they have learned.

One of the key outcomes 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 SRT program is a major milestone towards that outcome.

Trout Unlimited Canada wishes to thank the Ontario Trillium Foundation and the Government of Ontario for their support of our Stream Rehabilitation Training programs as well as the University of Guelph for hosting the program from 2015-18.
