Join Penn State Extension for Backyard Stream Repair Series Field Day, a hands-on workshop where you will get the opportunity to help repair a stream while learning. We will demonstrate and then give you a chance to participate in planting a riparian buffer and live staking in a waterway in need of streambank stabilization. Planting riparian buffers and live staking are affordable, easy ways that landowners can repair their backyard stream.
