Canceled: Agroforestry Workshop: Riparian Forest Buffers Class

  • Wednesday, October 27, 2021, 9:00 AM - 12:30 PM

This program has been canceled due to a scheduling conflict. Please check back in Spring 2022 for the rescheduled workshop.


Join us at the Agroforestry Resource Center for a workshop on Riparian Forest Buffers. This agroforestry practice intentionally combines water quality protection & conservation with sustainable food and forest production. In this workshop, participants will explore how to incorporate native, perennial, and often edible plant species into a fruitful buffer system that promotes healthy freshwater ecosystems and agroforestry products.

The workshop includes a classroom presentation on basic stream function, buffer assessment, and establishment using our newly developed Riparian Forest Buffer Guide. Participants will also learn about a local buffer case study and visit a demonstration site for a hands-on component.

Please dress appropriately for both indoor and outdoor conditions. Sturdy shoes, tick protection, and water are recommended. All participants will be required to wear a mask.
