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. Examples of streamside plants and plantings will be explored including some of those proposed for the Wawayanda Creek in the Village of Warwick. Our speaker will be Barbara Z. Restaino Barbara lives in the Catskill Mountains, an area rich in native flora, where she established her landscape architecture firm Restaino Design in 1992. She practices throughout the Hudson Valley Region. Her firm is currently working on a strategic study of the Wawayanda Creek with the Village of Warwick. Barbara is a Registered Landscape Architect and LEED Accredited Professional who combines design with a commitment to environmental concerns. Her primary interests lie in the use of native plants in a variety of settings from residential to restorations as well as designing attractive solutions for stormwater management.
