The focus of this workshop will be developing an Arizona Springs Restoration Handbook. The art and science of spring ecosystem restoration is a young practice, and only a few spring restoration projects have been published and reviewed for success. There is a growing interest in the restoration of springs in Arizona. This workshop seeks to advance the science of restoring spring ecosystems and to provide a consistent approach for stewarding springs by land managers and conservation organizations responsible for these ecosystems. Specifically, this workshop will focus on topics, parameters, and key issues related to the development of the restoration handbook, including (1) defining desired conditions and goals; (2) inventorying, assessing, and planning; (3) examining restoration options; (4) discussing management strategies; (5) reviewing legal and regulatory issues; (6) implementing restoration activities; (7) monitoring results; (8) incorporating feedback; and (9) evaluating success. Interactive discussions and small group activities will be used to arrive at an approach for developing an Arizona Springs Restoration Handbook.
