We are excited to announce the initiation of the California Process-based Restoration (Cal PBR) Network and invite you to participate and spread the word.
The goals of the Cal PBR Network are to promote process-based (aka, beaver-based, ecological, low-tech, nature-based) restoration approaches to increase the capacity of degraded river and stream ecosystems to retain water, support biodiversity, create fire resiliency, and adapt to climate change. The reason we are starting this open-source network is to encourage information sharing, increase restoration capacity through participation and training opportunities, and to provide a collaborative voice in support of PBR restoration approaches in California.
We encourage anyone interested in stream, river, and meadow restoration to check out our first newsletter (see below) and website (calpbr.org) and sign up to be included in future emails about meetings, trainings and project opportunities.
We look forward to expanding and growing the Network with your participation.
