2018 Rogue River Natural History and Restoration from a Raft

   Rogue trip            
THIS FIELD COURSE HAS BEEN CANCELED DUE TO SMOKE AND POOR AIR QUALITY.

Instructor: Craig Tuss
Date: Sunday, August 19, 2018
Location: Meet at TouVelle State Park, Central Point, OR
Tuition: $165
 
Ride the Rogue and immerse yourself in its ecology during this removal and restoration adventure. Two dams have been removed from the Rogue. And with the establishment of the Open Rivers Fund by the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, removal and modernization of up to 50 Rogue Valley basin dams and river impediments has become a 10-year goal. The Beeson Robison dam on Wagner Creek has already been removed to improve fish passage. Topics we'll discuss include methods of removal, sediment loads, impact on fish, and restoration measures. The class will board large rafts at Touvelle State Park boat launch, then float approximately six miles downstream, stopping to observe and discuss river processes including sediment movement, habitat complexity, and river channel features.

At the site of the former Gold Ray dam, you’ll be briefed on what’s happened and what’s being monitored post-dam. You’ll also pause at the mouth of Bear Creek to learn about restoration efforts. Tuition includes the rafting trip, provided by Liquid Expeditions.


 

Please note: Trip itineraries may change depending on seasonal river levels.
