Due to the popularity of this event, the Coastal Training Program decided to offer this workshop on two days. The intended audience for this workshop was city and county municipality land-use planners, agency biologists, environmental consultants, land managers, and anyone whose job entailed overseeing or doing the restoration of riparian areas. Workshop Goal: To introduce decision makers to the science and art of riparian restoration on California's northern and central coast. This workshop addressed the following questions: 1) What do we know about restoring riparian systems? 2) What are some successful methodologies for approaching riparian restoration? 3) Are there exemplary riparian restoration projects? 4) Why have some riparian restoration projects failed?
