The Best Stream Restoration Workshop You Will Ever Attend!

John, David Derrick, the IECA and Shasta College have been working on presenting this for a long time, and now we confirmed that all is a go.  And we couldn’t be more excited about it.  Here’s the deal…

If you are passionate about Stream Restoration than you do NOT want to miss this!


  • 3-days of classroom and in-field instruction at the Shasta College Campus
  • Learn to “Read a Stream” from David Derrick, Vicksburg MS.  David travels 230+ days a year visiting streams, teaching, designing, and implementing projects!!
  • Learn the MOST Environmentally-Sensitive Streambank Stabilization and Biotechnical Techniques from John McCullah.  These are the newest techniques out there.  We’re not going to cover the old stuff.
  • How are redirective techniques (rock vanes and bendway weirs) different from resistive techniques? See it for yourself and learn from experience.
  • Tour  and study TWO remarkable Salmonid stream restoration projects – Sulphur Creek and Clear Creek with the experts  (learn more about Sulphur Creek here)
  • Stillwater Creek at Shasta College will provide a actual learning laboratory
    • Discuss with the experts and plan the real-life restoration of this incised, highly channelized, collapsing Streambank.
    • Come back next year for the hands on execution of that plan
  • Price:  All of this for the silly low price of $ 200
    • Similar one-day courses from John and David cost over $ 300 each.  This BOOT CAMP is 3 days with BOTH John and David.
