Resilient Rivers: Good for fish and people

Fish and other aquatic organisms face threats from development as well as increasing frequency and intensity of floods and droughts and rising temperatures. Restoring rivers to natural conditions will help ensure the long-term survival of aquatic organisms, and has co-benefits for water quality and flood resilience. This talk will highlight three areas where municipalities can help protect aquatic habitats: forested riparian areas, aquatic organism passage, and log jams. Join VFWD Aquatic Habitat Biologist Will Eldridge to learn how allowing rivers to function naturally where it is safe to do so is more effective and more sustainable in the long run.
