Integrated Riparian Management uses PFC assessment to prioritize management needs for adaptive management with monitoring for riparian objectives.  Training is available to landowners, Federal, State, and local agency personnel, tribes, industry, conservation interests, and others.  Instructors are from Nevada Creeks and Communities Team.
