Riparian restoration monitoring for salmonid recovery within a multiple-use management context:  Meadow Creek restoration project in the Blue Mountains.
Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 10 a.m – 11 a.m.

Who should attend?  Especially useful for project managers working in riparian restoration and enhancement in areas with a lot of ungulates (elk, deer) and/or active cattle grazing.

Presenters:

Michael Wisdom, Research Wildlife Biologist, Pacific Northwest Research Station, USDA Forest Service, La Grande, OR.

Bryan Endress, Assistant Professor, Eastern Oregon Agriculture and Natural Resource Program, Department of Animal and Rangeland Sciences, Oregon State University, La Grande, OR.

This presentation will describe an ongoing-long term monitoring and research project at Starkey Experimental Forest and Range seeking to understand how herbivory by cattle, elk and deer affect the success and rate of recovery for riparian systems following extensive restoration (addition of instream structures, planting of woody trees and shrubs, etc.). 

We will describe the overall project and share key findings and results of vegetation recovery under different grazing scenarios of cattle versus elk herbivory.  We will also discuss the planned reduction of elk within Starkey, and the opportunity this presents to evaluate riparian restoration and recovery in a landscape where elk are functionally absent.
