Do you have a stream in your backyard? Did you know the land along the stream, known as the riparian buffer zone, can improve water quality and enhance wildlife habitat?

The Greene County Soil & Water Conservation District (GCSWCD) is offering an educational workshop for Streamside Landowners at the Mountain Top Library in Tannersville on Saturday, April 13th, from 10:00am-12:00pm. This workshop is geared for individuals who own streamside property in Hunter, Tannersville, Windham, Ashland, Jewett, Lexington, and Prattsville. Attendees will learn how to establish and increase the riparian buffer zone on their own property by planting native trees and shrubs. Participants may be eligible for Catskill Streams Buffer Initiative (CSBI) program funding and will have the opportunity to inquire about CSBI resources at this workshop.

For more details, or to register for this workshop, contact Laura Weyeneth, CSBI Coordinator at Greene County Soil & Water Conservation District, at or 518-622-3620. Advance registrations requested for this FREE event by Thursday, April 11th.
