The objective of this course is to provide students with a holistic view and appreciation for the ecology of aquatic ecosystems and the need for a watershed approach to developing restoration plans. The course will encourage students to consider restoration goals from a whole watershed perspective.

Specifically, by the end of this course students will be able to:
• characterize the structure and function of a watershed;
• describe the ecology of aquatic ecosystems (streams & rivers, lakes, wetlands);
• describe common aquatic ecosystem restoration techniques; and
• develop a simple restoration plan for an aquatic ecosystem.

The course will use lectures (both by the instructors and guest lectures), in-class group work and field trips to cover the learning objectives. 

There will be four assignments for this course and a quiz the last day of class. The assignments will be research-based and provide students with an opportunity to access a wide range of information available on aquatic ecosystem restoration. The quiz will be based on the readings and lecture material.
