Title: "Understanding Streams"

SPEAKER: Brad Maurer; Restoration Engineer, The Nature Conservancy

Brad has 20 years of experience in stream morphology, restoration, flood modeling,
and storm water issues. What is a "natural stream"? Why are so many of our urban
streams degraded or lined with rip rap? What would it take to make them function naturally? Find out the answers to these questions and get a general understanding of streams in understandable layman's terms.
