Upcoming Events

European Pond Conservation Network (EPCN) Conference

Monday, May 18, 2020 - 09:00 to Saturday, May 23, 2020 - 17:30
University College London

Responding to the considerable need to conserve European ponds, the conference will combine pond biology, hydrology and landscape ecology with pond conservation practice and welcomes both scientists and conservation practitioners to the meeting.

River Restoration: Fluvial-Geomorphic and Ecological Tools

Monday, June 22, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, June 26, 2020 - 17:00
Beaumont du Ventoux, Provence FR

This shortcourse/workshop emphasizes understanding geomorphic process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration projects and programs, with specific applications and field visits to Mediterranean and mountain environments.  The course draws heavily on innovative process-based river restoration and management experiences in France and elsewhere in the EU, complemented by experiences in North America.  Instruction includes lectures, field exercises, problem sets and workshops on approaches to planning and implementing process-based restoration, with instructors drawn from

Fish Passage 2020 - International Conference on River Connectivity

Sunday, June 28, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, July 3, 2020 - 17:00
Lisbon, Portugal

Rivers rank among the most threatened ecosystems in the world, but also among the most valuable to society. Therefore, a large amount of funding is made available for restoration programmes. Conflict over water is not only one of the most widespread global stressors, but can also have an impact on nature and people. For centuries, dams and weirs have been built to control floods, improve navigation, provide supply for drinking water or irrigation, create or enhance recreation opportunities, as well as a means for hydropower production.

Sediment Transport in Stream Assessment and Design

Monday, July 27, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, July 31, 2020 - 17:00
Logan, Utah, USA

This course is intended for those who wish to understand and apply the principles of sediment transport to alluvial channel assessment and design. Principles of open channel flow and sediment transport are combined with watershed-scale, hydrologic and sediment source analysis to place channel assessment and design in the appropriate context. Tools for estimating sediment supply at the watershed to reach level are applied in class exercises.

Geomorphic and Ecological Fundamentals for River and Stream Restoration

Monday, August 17, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, August 21, 2020 - 17:00
Truckee, California, USA

This five-day introductory course emphasizes understanding geomorphic and ecological process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration, covering general principles and case studies from a wide range of environments, and includes field measurements, mapping, interpretation, field trips to the Truckee River and streams in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and workshops on stream restoration problems faced by participants.

12th SERE Conference

Monday, August 31, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, September 4, 2020 - 17:30
Alicante, Spain


Science and political action towards socio-ecological restoration

The organizing committee and the University of Alicante welcome you to the 12th European Conference on Ecological Restoration SERE2020!

Between August 31 and September 4 2020, we will discuss challenges facing ecological restoration in post-2020 Europe, and particularly, how can ecological restoration promote the recovery of damaged, degraded and destroyed socio-ecological systems in these critical times.
