Livestaking For Minor Streambank Repairs Workshop March 30 In Lancaster County

Penn State Extension will hold a Livestaking For Minor Streambank Repairs Workshop March 30 at the Southeast Agricultural Research & Extension Center, 1446 Auction Road in Manheim, Lancaster County from 9:00 to 11:30 a.m.
Do you have a small stream on your property that is slowly (or maybe quickly) getting deeper? Are you losing property as it caves in or slumps off into the water during heavy rain events?
In some cases you need a professionally designed stream restoration plan to fix these issues, but you may also be able to repair minor stream bank erosion problems at home with a simple and affordable technique known as livestaking.
At this workshop, Extension educators will teach you about the process of cutting and planting livestakes, branch segments of trees and shrubs that are planted during their winter dormancy.
Educators will spend about 30 minutes discussing how the process works and then the remainder of the time we will spend practicing the techniques directly in a stream at the workshop site.
You will gain the skills you need to repeat this experience at your stream while also helping to repair a stream in need.
