Calendar of Events: Riparian Buffer Demonstration Workshop

Event Date: Sep 14, 2017 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Oregon’s new riparian rules were adopted July 1, 2017.
Rules have changed to include streams specifically identi-
fied to have salmon, steelhead or bull trout (SSBT). Under-
stand best management practices to minimize damage to
streams when harvesting timber. See examples of how to
implement the new rules. We’ll start with an indoor ses-
sion in Everett Hall where we’ll cover some essential basics
and then move outdoors to demonstration areas along the
Hopkins Riparian Trail. Jen Gorski and Glenn Ahrens, OSU
Extension Forestry and Natural Resources will guide the
session. You will learn:
• Basic stream classifications
• Buffers required for SSBT and fish streams
• Tree retention requirements
• Limiting factors for water quality
• Practice laying out “leave trees”
• Invasive plant control in buffered areas
• Simple practices to limit erosion from entering streams
There is no cost. Dress for the field, rain or shine and bring lunch and water. Registration is required, please con-
tact Jean Bremer at 503-655-8631 or jean.bremer@oregonstate.edu. For questions contact Jen Gorski at
