2-Day Riparian Management Course

June 15, 2018 - June 16, 2018


Do you have riparian areas on your land?

Join the Agroforestry and Woodlot Extension Society, Cows & Fish, and Northern Sunrise County for a mini-course that will give you ideas and tools to maximize the economic, social, and environmental benefits provided by your riparian areas. Examples of these benefits include improved water quality, moderation of floods and droughts, erosion reduction, wildlife habitat, forage production for livestock, recreational opportunities, and alternative enterprises such as timber, firewood, fruit, nuts, mushrooms, and medicinal plants.

This course includes:

  • Two full days of instruction/active participation on riparian area assessment, restoration and management. This includes site visits to nearby riparian areas each day, weather permitting.
  • Printouts of background information and management tools, including a course workbook, relevant informational factsheets and manuals, laminated maps of participants’ properties, and more.
  • Lunch and snacks/refreshments for both days.
  • The fee for this course is $20 per participant. This fee has been greatly reduced, as the majority of course costs are being covered by a grant from the Watershed Resiliency and Restoration Program (WRRP), administered by Alberta Environment and Parks.

You will leave the course with a draft version of your own Riparian Management Plan!
