“Taking the River Restoration Toolbox training really helped me visualize the functions of rivers, how to work with natural systems, and how to identify the best techniques to use in restoration projects. This training elevated my perspective to design restoration projects with a holistic approach.

The River Restoration Toolbox training was a hands-on, boots-on-the-ground experience that offered high-level and in-depth perspectives on designing successful restoration projects. I’ve been able to take the techniques I learned, share them with my colleagues, and apply them to projects to improve the overall outcome… I think every civil/environmental engineer/designer should have to take this training.”
