River Restoration Science

Enhancing and Sharing the Science of Restoring Rivers

Providing expertise, coordination, and training to a broad range of partners enhances stream restoration efforts and maximizes benefits to aquatic species and their habitats. This interdisciplinary, collaborative approach achieves much more than what the USFWS, or any single agency or organization, would be able to accomplish on its own. Like the range and complexity of the river systems that we seek to restore, these diverse partnerships are the key to long-term recovery of our aquatic environment.
