Our rivers are in crisis and the need for river restoration has never been more urgent. Water security and biodiversity indices for all of the world’s major rivers have declined due to pollution, diversions, impoundments, fragmented flows, introduced and invasive species, and many other abuses. This is the description of a newly published guidebook for riparian restoration, aiming to offer guidance for restoring damaged stream corridors. Renewing Our Rivers: Stream Corridor Restoration in Dryland Regions provides practitioners with the steps to “develop successful and viable stream restoration projects that last.”
SW CASC’s own Sarah LeRoy and Gregg Garfin are authors on the chapter on climate adaptation, exploring ways to integrate climate change into riparian restoration planning. Buy your copy here!
