How a long-term collaborative effort with multiple partners helped restore and protect the integrity of a bottomland hardwood system on a dam regulated river
Wednesday, March 29, 10:00 am ET
The recent adoption of a quasi-run-of-river flow regime at the John H. Kerr Dam and two lower hydropower dams, resulting from a years-long science-based effort by a broad-based partnership, will help to restore a more natural hydrologic regime to protect and enhance bottomland hardwood habitat like this parcel on the Roanoke River NWR.
