GWSS 290 Gender and Sport (M-F, 12:30-1:20, SLN#14400).

Water & Wood – New short film on river restoration

Dear friends and river lovers,
I’m excited to share with you a new online short film we’ve just released about re-establishing wood habitat in streams… a common but not always intuitive part of river restoration. We hope this film can help shine more light on why these projects are important, and I invite you to help us share this in your networks and circles (the Vimeo video is easily embeddable in websites, blogs, social media using the ‘share’ button):
This film is the second of several shorts we’ll be releasing this year as part of our ‘Willamette Futures’ project, which is aimed at sharing the challenge and potential of restoring the waters of Oregon’s big river.
