Organizers: Bruce Roll, Ph.D., Director of Watershed Management for Clean Water Services (CWS) and the nonprofit Clean Water Institute (CWI) in Hillsboro, Oregon; Dr. Robert Emanuel, Water Resources Project Manager, Clean Water Services; Derek Godwin, Oregon State University, Extension Watershed Management faculty; Dr. Rebecca McLain, Research Assistant Professor, Institute for Sustainable Solutions, Portland State University

Overview: The Tualatin River Watershed in northwestern Oregon is home to one of the USA’s largest and most successful landscape conservation programs. Since 2005 this program called “Tree for All” (www.jointreeforall.org) has restored more than 120 river miles across more than 25,000 acres in the rural and urban landscapes of the watershed. Creating a landscape conservation program capable of acting on a watershed scale has been an interesting journey, and it becomes particularly inspiring when we consider the stressors of interesting weather events and rapid urbanization as well as the scale of action needed to create a resilient and healthy watershed. Looking back on this journey, we have identified the attributes that have guided Tree for All’s success, with the hope that they may help guide similar efforts (https://www.thenatureofcities.com/2017/08/27/tree-journey-rethinking-urban-growth-landscape-scale/).   This workshop will provide participants with an opportunity learn about this program and the issues to consider when moving from pilot projects to a full scale landscape conservation program. This is an interactive workshop that will provide participants with examples and the technical and social considerations that help support the development of a landscape conservation program.

Intended Audience: Practitioners of landscape conservation programs, academic institutions, government agencies, social scientists. This workshop would be applicable to students as well.
