Riparian (Habitat) Restoration
Urban creeks are under significant pressure from development and current stormwater management practices. How vegetation is managed in these areas can offset negative impacts to some degree and provide water quality, streambank stability and flood control benefits. City of Austin Watershed Protection Department staff will provide training on developing restoration plans for riparian areas. These plans will be required to guide future volunteer efforts in City parks. The class will perform a brief creek walk, evaluate the area for potential restoration and develop a plan based on a restoration template developed by WPD staff.
