2016 Rogue River Undammed: River Ecology from a Raft
Instructor: Craig Tuss, M.S.
Date: Sunday, August 21 , 2016
Location: Meet at TouVelle State Park boat launch
What happens to a river and its habitats once the dams go away? Find out as your ride the Rogue and immerse yourself in its ecology during this removal and restoration adventure. The session will start at approximately 9 am at the TouVelle State Park boat launch area (north side of river downstream from Table Rock Road bridge). After a short introduction, we’ll float down the Rogue River for approximately 6 miles (river mile 131 to river mile 125), stopping along the way to observe and discuss river processes such as sediment movement, habitat complexity, river channel features. We’ll then stop near Bear Creek for lunch and the site of the former Gold Ray Dam to see and discuss restoration and monitoring actions since the dam was removed in August 2010. Float will then proceed to the take out point.
Rafts and lunch provided by Ferron’s Fun Trips.
