Riparian Buffer Demonstration Workshop For Forest Landowners

Hopkins Demonstration Forest

Thursday, September 14, 2017 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM

Oregon’s new riparian rules were adopted July 1, 2017. Rules have changed to include streams specifically identified to have salmon, steelhead or bull trout (SSBT). Understand best management practices to minimize damage to streams when harvesting timber. See examples of how to implement the new rules. We’ll start with an indoor session in Everett Hall where we’ll cover some essential basics and then move outdoors to demonstration areas along the Hopkins Riparian Trail. Jen Gorski and Glenn Ahrens, OSU Extension Forestry and Natural Resources will guide the session. You will learn:
•Basic stream classifications
•Buffers required for SSBT and fish streams
•Tree retention requirements
•Limiting factors for water quality
•Practice laying out “leave trees”
•Invasive plant control in buffered areas
•Simple practices to limit erosion from entering streams

There is no cost. Dress for the field, rain or shine and bring lunch and water. Registration is required, please contact Jean Bremer at 503-655-8631 or jean.bremer@oregonstate.edu. For questions contact Jen Gorski at
