What is a riparian buffer zone? According to the USDA, it’s an area adjacent to a stream, lake, or wetland that contains a combination of trees, shrubs, and/or other perennial plants. The vegetative zone serves as a buffer to pollutants entering the water from runoff; controls erosion; and provides habitat. Not surprisingly, most of WLCT’s properties contain riparian zones and require special attention for conservation.
On this Herb Hadfield walk, Ross will share key land stewardship strategies to maintain healthy waterways and wetlands.
