Penn State Extension 5-Part Backyard Stream Repair Webinar Series Registration Now Open; Jan. 15 Webinar Also Available

Registration is now open for Penn State Extension's five-part webinar series
Backyard Stream Repair in February and March.  Registration deadline February 9.

Is your stream getting deeper or wider? Are you losing some of your land every time it rains? Have you wondered why your streambanks are changing so rapidly and what you can do about that? 

Join Penn State Extension for the Backyard Stream Repair Series focused on repairing your backyard stream. 

Each week we will be presenting on a step-by-step DIY process for homeowners and landowners. The techniques are meant to be simple and affordable, and the benefits are wide-ranging.

Benefits of backyard stream repairs include--

-- Improved bank stability and reduced erosion, saving property from washing away

-- Added aesthetic property value

-- A new sense of place and reduced noise

-- Less cost and need for mowing, watering, and fertilizing

-- Intercepted and reduced water pollution

-- Available habitat for many types of wildlife (butterflies, hummingbirds, frogs, dragonflies, and more)

The webinars will be held February 9, 16 and 23 and March 2 and 9 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m.

Participants in this workshop will receive a complimentary copy of our full-color manual, Simple Solutions for Your Eroding Backyard Stream (United States addresses only). 

Participants will also secure an invitation to one of several future hands-on field workshops, open only to webinar registrants, which will be offered across Pennsylvania when in-person events resume.

Professional credits are available.

Jan. 15 Stream Repair Webinar

Penn State Extension will also hold free one-session Backyard Stream Repair webinar on January 15 from 9:15 to 10:00 a.m. as an introduction to this topic.
