Maximizing Project Success with Site Design Software - Spons

With the countless technological advances we have seen in the past decade, it only makes sense that our erosion control and revegetation efforts join the trend. By utilizing software to take an in-depth look at all aspects that can affect site closure, assist in developing and planning your erosion control and revegetation efforts all while having the ability to organize and store your project data. By utilizing these tools it is possible to create a plan that reduces risk and maximizes success.

Post-Wildfire Remediation on Federal Lands

The wildfires of 2017 were monumental in their expanse, severity and cost to suppress- and the damage doesn't always end when the fire is put out. Loss of vegetation and fire-induced water repellent soils can trigger increased runoff which causes erosion, flooding or debris flows many miles downstream of the fire. This presentation will provide an overview of the effects of wildfires on natural resources and describe the post-fire emergency response (BAER) program implemented by the Forest Service and other federal land management agencies. Typical emergency response actions and treatment examples will be described along with examples of longer-term post fire remediation needs and costs.

Soil Health for Construction and Revegetation Projects

Healthy soil is a key component of long term erosion control and sustainable vegetation. One of the biggest ongoing challenges facing the erosion control and revegetation industries is the lack of healthy soil as a starting point on a project, as nearly all project sites are stripped down to nutritionally deficient subsoil layers incapable of supporting vegetation. This presentation will provide full details on what constitutes healthy soil in addition to providing comprehensive information about BST’s. Further and more importantly, this presentation will determine if BST are actually impacting soil health. In particular, multiple project sites that have been evaluated for various soil health parameters prior to and after BST application will be presented to determine soil health impacts.

Sustainable Native Plant Establishment, Bioengineering & Successful Monitoring Methods - Part One

This course is Part One of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment and includes elements and methods for developing a well-thought-out native vegetation establishment program. In this first module, participants will learn why native plants are better than non-natives, what makes a good erosion control species, how to select plant species specific to their regions that can best control erosion and sediment transport, how to develop a suitable seed mixture of species, the pros and cons of different seeding techniques, and methods to ensure the success of your plan. The course is taught by an experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, under his belt. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.

The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided. Part two of a two module course about Native Plant Establishment. In this second module the focus is on addressing the importance of seeding and planting methods, and soil amending, as well as post planting monitoring. This part of the course will help participants identify and understand how to address various problem soils that are commonly encountered. In addition, monitoring methods are discussed and participants will learn how to prepare a monitoring plan suitable for most jurisdictions. Part Two is taught by the same experienced restoration ecologist with over 35 years’ experience, and countless projects, some of them award winning, as Part One. The course is suitable for beginners to experts, and all will find something of value in the information provided.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization - Part Two

Module two discusses beach and dune restoration and nourishment as an important component of proper coastal system management. Construction and maintenance of the components that make up the coastal system, such as dune restoration (including dune vegetation and sand fencing) and beach nourishment, are discussed in detail, including construction techniques and costs. The variety of techniques and equipment used to construct projects is discussed at length, including locating and analyzing compatible sediment material, which includes grain size, composition, and color, both from offshore and upland areas. Finding and transporting the best sediment material for the appropriate beach and dune system is a major focal point.

Techniques for Effective Beach & Shoreline Stabilization • Part One & Part Two

Module one discusses the components of the coastal system and explains longshore transport, tidal inlet processes, the causes of erosion and offers a variety of engineering solution to address these problems. Shoreline armoring methods (which can include a multitude of such engineering solutions as vertical sheet pile bulkheads or seawalls, revetments, geotextile structures, and other forms of armoring) are discussed, along with structural designs intended to protect the shoreline, such as groins and breakwaters. Examples of the variety of these types of structures, the materials that are used, and their application are discussed, outlining their function and potential adverse impacts as well as the benefits that they can provide. Module two discusses beach and dune restoration and nourishment as an important component of proper coastal system management. Construction and maintenance of the components that make up the coastal system, such as dune restoration (including dune vegetation and sand fencing) and beach nourishment, are discussed in detail, including construction techniques and costs.

The Important Role of Vegetation in Stormwater Management

Vegetation is Nature’s best management practice (BMP) for controlling erosion, yet when we discuss BMPs, we are often focused on structural practices that reduce erosion and/or remove sediment. This webinar will focus on the important role that vegetation plays in stormwater management during and after construction and will present new guidance developed in Colorado that covers many fundamentals of successful revegetation and could be adapted to other regions. Dr. Earles will discuss the different hydrologic, physical and biological processes that make vegetation an effective BMP. Students will leave the webinar with a renewed appreciation for vegetation and the key role it plays in effective stormwater management.
