Part of the Wood River Land Trust’s 2022 Thinking Globally Acting Locally Speaker Series, hosted by The Community Library.

Brian Cluer, Fluvial Geomorphologist with NOAA Fisheries in the West Coast Region is currently on the cutting edge of some exciting new restoration techniques. After decades of looking at how to mitigate stream degradation using in-channel techniques to add habitat elements or increase some natural processes, Cluer and his colleagues started to wonder what it could look like to examine valley-wide restoration.

This talk will lead the listener through different restoration techniques, their applications, and what bringing our tributaries back to “Stage Zero” health can mean for the overall health of the Big Wood River.

Following Brian’s discussion, Ryan Santo, River Initiative Director for the Wood River Land Trust will talk about the work the Land Trust is doing to restore the Big Wood River into a world class trout fishery. Brian and Ryan will then take questions from the audience and will provide ways for listeners to get involved.

Register at to attend in person. Proof of Vaccination and Masks are required. The program will also be available to watch live or later on the Library’s Vimeo:
