EL offers environmental workshops and training through a variety of programs and in a variety of venues. One avenue is through the Proponent Sponsored Engineer Corps Training (PROSPECT) Program, managed by the USACE’s Learning Center, Huntsville, AL. This training addresses numerous environmental planning, restoration, and management issues of interest to the USACE and other agencies. We are also able to develop workshops and training courses upon request through several technical support programs (WOTS, DOTS, and WRAP) and the Natural Resources R&D Center. These are designed to meet specific needs not otherwise addressed under PROSPECT.

A workshop on "Regional Sediment Management (RSM) and Engineering With Nature (EWN)" was held August 28-30, 2012, in Portland, Oregon. The workshop was developed to accomplish several goals. One was to identify opportunities to advance science, engineering, and operational practice leading to expanded environmental benefits from navigation infrastructure and operations within USACE. The workshop's second goal was to conduct the Regional Sediment Management (RSM) fiscal year 2012 In Progress Review (IPR). The workshop was sponsored by the RSM and DOER Programs and further served as a conduit to share technical presentations, to network, to participate in valuable discussions of relevant experiences, and to generate outcomes that will support the USACE Navigation mission.

The 60 participants in the workshop included representatives from USACE HQ, scientists and engineers from ERDC, attendees from 21 USACE Districts, as well as representatives from academia and industry.

The workshop began with 10 presentations (see below) to help build shared understanding of the context and the opportunity for applying EWN to the various Civil Works missions. Representatives from the ERDC CHL and EL; USACE Districts including St. Louis, Mobile and Galveston; and academia discussed opportunities for past and ongoing projects related to EWN.

The purpose of the workshop was to identify opportunities to advance science, engineering, and operational practice leading to expanded environmental benefits from navigation infrastructure and operations through in-depth discussions of relevant experiences, issues, and lessons learned. The concepts, principles, and practices associated with Working with Nature (as developed by the International Navigation Association, PIANC) and Building with Nature (as developed through a partnership between government and private sector interests in The Netherlands) support the development of navigation infrastructure by maximizing the use of natural processes and the generation of environmental benefits. The Working with Nature and Building with Nature concepts have garnered much support among navigation interest in many countries.

Participants in the workshop included representatives from USACE Headquarters (HQ), 12 scientists and engineers from ERDC, several representatives from the Portland and Mobile Districts, and three representatives from EcoShape.

The two-day workshop included 17 technical presentations (see below) on eight topics,including a broad range of issues related to identifying, developing, and quantifying environmental benefits associated with navigation(e.g., innovative engineering and operational practices, modeling, benefits quantification, and strategic communications). The presenters were charged with introducing concepts, projects, efforts, and achievements pertinent to their topics. A facilitated discussion followed to identify opportunities, needs, and constraints relevant to each topic. The workshop created a foundation for more extensive, detailed exchanges and/or future collaborations.
