NORTH CAROLINA STATE UNIVERSITY - STREAM RESTORATION PROGRAM

NC State University offers a variety of erosion control, infiltration and stream restoration educational opportunities.  These include a series of professional development workshops on a series of stream restoration, invasive species control, stream assessment, modeling, aquatic taxonomy, rain garden certification, stormwater monitoring and many others.  Although on the east coast, a number of these courses sound very interesting.  Most are limited to about 32 students and include hands-on time with instructors.  Courses are in the Asheville and  Raleigh, North Carolina areas, with a few others scattered around in Illinois and others.
