If you follow Texas Water Resources Institute (TWRI) on social media (@TxWRI), you may have noticed our monthly program spotlights, but in case you missed it, for the month of September the focus was on our Urban Riparian & Stream Restoration Program.
Throughout the month, we shared articles about the great work our team is doing to help reduce urban riparian and stream degradation in Texas:
- TWRI program trains professionals to improve Texas’ degraded urban rivers, streams
- ICYMI: Photo essay of planting day at the Urban Riparian Demonstration site
The Urban Riparian & Stream Restoration Program includes Urban Stream Processes and Restoration trainings and a demonstration site at the Irma Lewis Seguin Outdoor Learning Center in the Geronimo Creek watershed.
Also included in the spotlight are “Meet a scientist” interviews about the Urban Stream Processes and Restoration training instructors, Clare Entwistle, TWRI research associate, and Dr. Fouad Jaber, Texas A&M University associate professor and extension specialist at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center at Dallas.
