For those of you who missed Janine’s outstanding talk at the February River Restoration NW Symposium, this is your chance to hear her challenge our fundamental assumptions that underpin how we approach restoration.
Janine Castro is a geomorphologist for both the US Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service in Portland, Oregon, where she develops streamlining tools to improve stream restoration implementation and effectiveness, provides technical assistance on restoration projects, evaluates permit applications for dam removal and channel reconstruction, and coordinates between government agencies on controversial issues, such as instream gravel mining, pipelines, and energy transmission lines. Janine provides national and international training on geomorphology, stream restoration, and public speaking for scientists. She is one of the five founding members of River Restoration Northwest, adjunct faculty in the Environmental Sciences and Management Department at Portland State University, the Technical Director for the PSU River Restoration Professional Certificate Program and is a regular blogger on the Communicatalyst blogspot (communicatalyst.com).
