Field Courses

After our principal, Cheryl Harrelson, co-authored “Stream Channel Reference Sites: An Illustrated Guide to Field Technique,” she received many requests for hands-on training. Our field courses offer the opportunity to practice mapping skills, to learn about analysis of that data, and to tour a variety of stream types and completed restoration projects.

Previous courses included:

July 2011 – Mapping and Assessment of Natural Stream Channels
Presented by Steady Stream Hydrology and Kansas State University

This field course taught students how to map stream channels in keeping with the principles of Natural Channel Hydrology. Students learned to organize and analyze stream data and were  introduced to concepts of Natural Channel Hydrology. The course included five and a half days of instruction, three of which were spent in the field mapping channels and visiting a wide range of stream types and enhancement projects. The remainder of the time included lectures and opportunities to work with other students in analyzing stream data collected in the field. The course targeted college students and practitioners involved in natural resources, including hydrology, geology, geomorphology, watershed science/management, aquatic ecology, landscape ecology, landscape architecture, engineering, and other related fields.
