The goal of this workshop is to provide attendees a working understanding of:
-how streams interact with their banks,
-how bank vegetation affects the likelihood and rate of bank erosion,
-why projects designed to restore streambanks and halt erosion may succeed and/or fail,
-step-by-step, hand-on instruction in the design and installation of an actual streambank
bioengineering project during the course.
The intended audience for this workshop is landowners, contractors/consultants, conservation
organization members and volunteers, Conservation District personnel, and agency personnel with direct
permitting or project management authority.
The workshop will be led by Jo Christensen (USFS) and will consist of a half-day classroom session starting
at 9:00 the morning of April 3rd the Meagher County Training Center, 105 W. Crawford in White Sulphur
Springs. The field session will begin the afternoon of the 3rd and will proceed all day through the 4th and
5th. Instruction at the project site will explain site specific considerations and hands-on, step-by-step
instruction on how to properly install a bioengineered streambank revegetation or stabilization project.
