|Healthy Rivers: A Water Course|
|Post Date:||September 11, 2019|
"Healthy Rivers: A Water Course" is a dynamic CD-ROM program that explores the ecology and management of river systems. Produced by the Minnesota DNR Division of Ecological Resources, knowledge was synthesized from a team of interdisciplinary scientists, resource managers, and multimedia specialists to present this engaging, instructional guide about our relationship to rivers and streams. Featuring:
► 220 screens of information about rivers in an easy-to-navigate format
The user-friendly program organizes information around a logical, five-component framework (Flow, Shape, Connections, Quality, & Life) for understanding complicated principles of river and stream ecology. Case studies examine the history of river use and provide a basis for a future vision of water resource management. A section exploring the value of river system goods and services leads to inspiring examples of local leaders and practical, action-oriented ideas for next steps. A complete bibliography complements additional references and resources for further study.
"Healthy Rivers" is intended for secondary and post secondary educators; adult citizens working with conservation and watershed organizations on river management issues; land management agencies, local governments, environmental consultants, and policy makers working towards sustainable management of our river and stream resources.
