"Stage 8 Restoration: The How's and Why's of NOSC's Upcoming River Restoration Work"
Presented by Kevin Long
Project Manager,
North Olympic Salmon Coalition

The program will showcase upcoming river restoration work on the Olympic Peninsula. The solutions to repairing these reaches will serve as a jumping off point to begin to explore stream evolution, just what happened to the reaches, why they evolved to look the way they do now, and how they can be restored to some of their previous glory to the benefit of fish, wildlife and people.

Kevin has been working in the field of biology since graduating from Oregon State in 1993. Before coming to NOSC in 2002 Kevin worked on various biological studies on everything from legless lizards to bald eagles (legged). Kevin is responsible for project development, permitting, implementation, and contracting required to implement NOSC’s large scale salmon habitat restoration projects. He thinks of himself as an interpreter between the ecosystems we are restoring and the stakeholders, funders, designers, regulatory agencies, and construction contractors involved in getting restoration projects on the ground. An avid SUP surfer, forager, and backpacker, Kevin is most at home in the woods, on the water, or in his expansive garden.
