Can You Restore a Creek By Doing Nothing?

This presentation will explain how creeks and rivers form with the interaction of water, sediment, and riparian vegetation.  Why do streams and riparian systems evolve between Healthy and Non-Healthy conditions will be explained.  How do you restore a non-healthy stream to a healthy stream both with and without mechanical assistance?  The power of natural resilience of the streams and riparian vegetation to return a stream to a healthy condition will be covered in depth with multiple examples.
