Native Stream Banks with Southern Highlands Reserve
April 19 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Protecting our streambanks protects water quality, wildlife and natural beauty. Plants help reduce erosion by holding soil in place, protect water quality by filtering sediments and pollutants, provide wildlife habitat and cover for fish and create scenic beauty along the water’s edge. This presentation is designed to help owners of streambank or riparian properties understand ecological concepts that will not only enhance their property but also protect water resources. Learn about why native plants are vital for protecting our streambanks, the benefits of riparian zones, how to assess your own property, and understand the natural processes that are occurring in your water, soil, and plants.
