Riparian Management Course


Are you a farmer, rancher, or acreage owner with a riparian area, or land that borders some sort of water feature? Learn how to maximize the benefits that these areas provide to your own operations and to surrounding watersheds.


On August 10-11th, the Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society, Cows and Fish, several counties and municipal districts have partnered to deliver this two-day course. It aims to help landowners manage their riparian areas in ways that maximize the environmental, social, and economic benefits to themselves, their community, and the greater watershed.

Examples of these benefits include improved water quality, moderation of floods and droughts, erosion reduction, wildlife habitat, forage production for livestock, recreational opportunities, and alternative enterprises such as timber, firewood, fruit, nuts, mushrooms, and medicinal plants.

This two-day workshop will take you through assessing the health, benefits, and potential uses of the natural water on your property.

Advance-registration is required by August 7, 2018. The fee for this course is $20 per participant.
