Streamside Native Plants: By the Banks of the Wawayanda Creek

Date: 
Fri, 11/18/2011 - 6:30pm - 7:30pm
Age Group: 
Adult

Creeks, streams and rivers flow through a variety of landscapes from highly altered urbanized centers to scenic rural lands. Areas next to streams are particularly challenging because of their susceptibility to flooding, scouring and erosion. In this presentation, we will look at native plants as some of our best streamside planting choices, for their ornamental qualities as well as their ability to support biodiversity and protect stream channels.
