Woody Debris: Good, bad or both? Who is responsible for their effect on habitat, infrastructure and public safety?

River Management Roundtable
March 14 | 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. ET

How much naturally fallen or intentionally felled wood must accumulate before it becomes a nuisance or hazard? Who reduces, clears and relocates its components? Where do you relocate it, responsibly? River recreation continues to grow, and woody debris management is becoming part of river managers’ portfolio of responsibilities on rivers like yours. River Management Roundtable panelists will include David Cernicek, Bridger Teton National Forest, and David Brown, Tennessee Paddlesports Association, to discuss best practices for woody debris management.
