RCI Staff Complete California Rapid Assessment Method (CRAM) Training

Lynn Zonge and Joanne Robben completed an intensive three-day California Rapid Assessment Method for Wetlands and Riparian Areas (CRAM) Riverine Training. The course was held in South Lake Tahoe and taught by Sarah Pearce with the San Francisco Estuary Institute.

The California Rapid Assessment Method (CRAM) is a standardized, cost-effective tool for assessing the health of wetlands and riparian habitats. CRAM is applicable to all wetland types. It is designed for assessing ambient conditions throughout California. It can also be used to assess the performance of compensatory mitigation projects and restoration projects.
