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 address how we can develop restoration plans for riparian areas. These plans can then be used to guide future Adopt-A-Park leaders and volunteer efforts in city parks. The class includes a brief creek walk, evaluation of the area for potential restoration, and plan development based on a restoration template developed by WPD staff.
