This presentation will discuss the benefits of downed woody materials to streams and current methods of restoring this critical ecosystem component. Historically, streams in Penn’s Woods looked much different than they do today. Fallen woody debris in stream channels and floodplains had a profound effect on stream-valley ecosystems, and the removal of those materials often had unintended consequences.
What will participants learn:
- How woody debris benefits streams, restores fish and wildlife habitat, and protects water quality
- New and simple methods of putting woody materials into streams
- The importance of stream-valley ecosystems
