About the Workshop
Is there a stream on your property? Are the stream-banks eroding? Are you losing land?
Learn how to protect your property and improve the natural environment by stabilizing the stream in your backyard. Learn from NC State University experts about practical, cost-effective solutions using natural materials and native plants to create a healthy streamside environment. You will participate in an actual “hands-on” stream repair exercise at a local park, enhancing an eroding streambank using grading, fiber matting, and native plants.
Attendees will have the opportunity to observe a successful stream repair, ask questions of experts, and install stream protection practices including live-staking techniques to stabilize and beautify a problem streambank.
