Photo of sediment runnoff into nearshoreThis class will cover the characteristics of watersheds, and how factors such as land use patterns and management practices can affect stormwater quantity, quality, and flow rates. We will learn how these factors impact nearshore marine ecosystems, and look specifically at how stormwater pollutants affect salmon. We will then learn about land management methods that can help to reduce pollution from stormwater, such as rain gardens, bioswales, and other 'Green Infrastructure' practices.
