Forestry Training Course Goal
This course is designed to give solid reasons for being smart with our roads, especially where they cross streams. The outcome we are hoping for is that participants will be able to construct road crossings that are safe and environmentally effective. There are both environmental and economic reasons to pay attention to the details.
This course begins with a brief discussion of how water moves through the forest environment and how we protect the natural qualities through rules and legislation. Once a person has that background it is easier to see why erosion and sedimentation must be controlled. We are then able to look at ways to control erosion through selecting the right crossing locations and structures and installing them correctly.
Upon completion of this course, the participant will have an introductory knowledge of:
- Forest hydrology
- Fish habitat and water quality
- Planning and approvals for roads
- Erosion control during grader operation
- Removing and reclaiming road structures
