Streambank Restoration Workshop
February 28 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
North Carolina Wildlife Federation is sponsoring a streambank restoration workshop in conjunction with NC State, the NC Extension and NCWF’s Island Wildlife Chapter – Cape Fear Region, a key player in bringing important conservation projects like this to fruition on the local level.
This streambank restoration workshop will include required, pre-recorded lectures and hands-on learning at Jumping Run Creek in Wilmington!
Attendees will learn how to protect and improve the natural environment of streams by stabilizing the stream bank and other eroding areas. NC State University and Extension experts will provide practical, cost-effective solutions using natural materials and native plants to create a healthy streamside. During the in-person session, attendees will participate in hands-on stream protection practices including harvesting live-staked native plants and/or installing live-stakes on a stream.
A certification exam will be provided electronically after the workshop. Those who receive a passing grade of 80% or above will be recognized as Certified in Stream Bank Repair by NC State University Extension. You an participate as a paying attendee to receive a certificate or register as an NCWF-Volunteer at no cost to participate without receiving a certificate.
