Riparian Health Assessment Webinar, December 23, 2020

2020 Rapid Riparian Assessment Webinar: This webinar introduces the Riparian Bullseye Assessment method, a simple, qualitative approach to evaluating the health of riparian systems. No formal training in riparian ecology is necessary to use the Riparian Bullseye, which covers the basic indicators of ecosystem health allowing both an evaluation of individual ecological processes and the system as a whole. This webinar was hosted by the High Plains Grasslands Alliance in partnership with the Hermit’s Peak Watershed Alliance, Cimarron Watershed Alliance and New Mexico State University and support provided by many sources including the USDA-WSARE program.
