The importance of seasonal creeks on woodlands and other rural properties will be discussed by a panel of experts. Topics will include riparian protection, enhancement and improvement so that trees and other plants will provide shade, soil conservation and biodiversity. The goal is for all wildlife, including insects and birds, to live and thrive. Smaller seasonal creeks and drainages also have a number of benefits to consider.
Among the panelists are Eugene Weir, Restoration Project Manager for The Freshwater Trust, and Jakob Shockey, Restoration Program Manager for The Applegate Partnership & Watershed Council.
