Description
Join Keep Austin Beautiful and the Adopt-a-Creek program as we get hands-on learning of the benefits of healthy riparian areas! Riparian zones refer to the land surrounding rivers, creeks, and ponds. Austin is filled with dozens of creek systems. The health of these zones plays a key role in protecting the water it surrounds.

We will begin the morning with coffee and snacks as we delve into stream functions, characteristics of healthy and degraded streams, and how volunteers can work to achieve healthy creeks. We will then move down the trails in Springdale park as we learn techniques to improve riparian zones. Please anticipate a good amount of walking in easy to moderate terrain, as we will be moving between a couple sections to look at stream examples.
We will be covering topics such as:
-Invasive species ID
-Girdling, weed wrenching, and hand pulling invasive plants
-planting grass and shrub plugs
-rake-in seeding and seed balls

This is the second in a monthly recurring series. Each month will cover the same topics, though the scope of work my shift to fit the season. An attendance of one of these workshops is required for every NEW Adopt-a-Creek member, however the workshop is open to the general public for anyone who can benefit.
