Streambank Restoration Field Tour at Cliff Gibbs Ranch
Thursday, September 14th at 12:00 pm
IRWP, Watershed Conservation Resource Center (WCRC), and Northwest Arkansas Land Trust (NWALT) will co-host a streambank restoration project field tour on Thursday, September 14th. WCRC is an organization that uses natural channel design engineering methods with the goal of ecological restoration, not just streambank stabilization. NWALT serves to conserve and protect properties of high conservation value across Northwest Arkansas and holds a conservation easement on the riparian land around the project.
Please join us for a free lunch and tour. Staff from WCRC, NWALT, and landowner Cliff Gibbs will be on-hand to answer your questions about streambank erosion, how you can prevent it, and what you can do about it.
Date: Thursday, September 14th
Location: 16734 Old Highway 68, Siloam Springs, AR 72761
Time: 12:00 to 2:00 pm
