The course demonstrates how we integrate disciplines through a systems approach, by providing students with an understanding of watershed and stream dynamics, assessment and monitoring, rehabilitation planning and implementation. This course will provide a great education for anyone interested in on the ground restoration including conservationists, stewardship groups, students, researchers, and professionals.

Alberta’s gravel mining policy significantly erodes environmental protection by allowing gravel mining to occur in the 1:100 year floodplain of rivers. Documents obtained by private citizens in a Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy (FOIP) request reveal that Alberta’s internal sand and gravel mining policy was developed and approved in 2011 in a secretive process that ignored expert scientific advice and excluded the public.
