EcoStream: Stream Ecology and Restoration Conference – Evolving from Two Decades of Lessons Learned to Meet Future Challenges is NC State University Stream Restoration Program’s biennial southeast stream restoration conference. With preserving, enhancing, and restoring the entire riparian ecosystem in mind, EcoStream is the preeminent conference that focuses on stream restoration for the southeast region of the US. This well-attended event facilitates discussions among restoration practitioners, managers and scientists towards advancing ecological restoration to better achieve functional inter-connectedness of wetlands, streams, hydrology, riparian corridors and the biologic communities they support.
EcoStream is a valuable forum for exchanging ideas and experiences that encourages continuing research and enhances networking among restoration professionals. Through presentations, panel conversations, exhibits and networking among peers and colleagues, the 2018 EcoStream conference continues to influence the future of stream restoration in the Southeast.
