Teri Jo Barber has thirty years of experience working in the watershed sciences. Initially this involved preparing wetlands for tertiary wastewater treatment and employment with USFS as a fisheries biologist. Since 1995 she has developed Ridge to River and has designed and implemented bioengineered instream and riparian restoration projects, upslope erosion control plans, culvert design/sizing/installation, drinking water quality assessments for non point source pollution, and water supply measurements, conservation, and permitting. Teri Jo’s goal is to improve the quality and availability of freshwater resources while balancing human needs with the increasingly important role of native plants, fish, and wildlife. She is a licensed hydrologist certified by American Institute of Hydrology and licensed stormwater designer certified by California Stormwater Quality Association.
