The Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professionals Program will host a Riparian Buffers For Landscape Professionals Workshop on September 18 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. in Paradise Township, York County.

This one-day workshop combines classroom instruction with field exploration of existing buffers, and hands-on activities. 
Topics covered include multifunctional buffers, design aesthetics, plant layout and installation techniques, planning for maintenance, and invasive species identification and management. 
The instructors for the Workshop are: Ryan Davis, Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay; Kristen Kyler, Penn State Agriculture and Environment Center and Nick Myers from LandStudies.
The Workshop is designed specifically for Chesapeake Bay Watershed Landscape Professionals, but is open to all interested professionals.
