Iowa’s River Restoration Toolbox is a series of best management practices developed to assist designers in stream stabilization and restoration projects. The Toolbox was developed by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources to assist Iowa designers and reviewers of stream stabilization and restoration projects by providing proven techniques that incorporate natural materials, such as logs, rocks, and live plantings. The toolbox training program is broken into two levels, each over a four-day period, that gives the participant an in-depth, hands-on experience.
