We will be in good company this week at the 2022 Salmonid Restoration Conference in beautiful Santa Cruz.
PCI Principal Civil Engineer Luke Walton will be presenting Tuesday at a workshop on Restoration Approaches to Instream Large Wood Augmentation along with our colleagues at Trout Unlimited, Pacific Watershed Associates, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, and others. Principal Hydrologist Christopher Woltemade will be presenting Friday at 10:30am on High-Resolution Water Budget Hydrology to Support Collaborative Water Management for Salmonid Recovery in the Mill Creek Watershed and Navarro River.
The theme of this year’s conference is Reconnecting with Resilience, and its central coast location is important to that theme.
“Santa Cruz is home to some of the southernmost populations of wild salmonids left in California,” the Agenda Packet states. “The conference will highlight lagoons, seascape ecology, ocean conditions, life history variation, and feature tracks on drought, climate, and hydrology; and another on physical habitat conditions and food webs.”
