Whiskeytown Logging Road Removal Project
The Cooperative Agreement



Shasta College in Northern California has developed a Watershed Restoration Curriculum which involves a multi-disciplinary approach to Ecosystem Management.  In 1996, the Whiskeytown National Recreation Area (NRA) and Shasta College entered into a cooperative agreement which enabled them to share resources, including grant funding, for developing watershed restoration projects.  Educationally, project-based learning in a natural environment is proving to be much more effective than relying solely on in-classroom instruction.  Whiskeytown NRA is providing the "living laboratory.  Whiskeytown staff, Shasta College students and other professionals have gained a great deal of experience in landform restoration as a result of this project.
