PA Highlands Coalition to Host Multi-functional Riparian Buffer Webinar

The PA Highlands Coalition will be hosting a webinar titled Multi-functional Riparian Buffers – A new and collaborative approach to land and water conservation” on June 12th, 2018 at 10:30am. 

The PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and the PA Infrastructure Investment Authority recently distributed 1.1 million dollars in grants throughout Pennsylvania for planting multi-functional stream buffers, which incorporate species such as nut trees, berries, and willows in buffer zones. This strategy helps to both protect clean water and provide an incentive to landowners, a collaborative solution that helps to raise the profile of riparian buffers in the PA Highlands and beyond.

Join presenters Tracey Coulter, Agroforesty Coordinator at the PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and Austin Unruh, owner of Crow and Berry Land Management, as we discuss the recent DCNR grants and the realities of utilizing these tools on the ground.
