Whiskeytown Logging Road Removal
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.
