Central Kootenay Field Day > Riparian Management on Farmland

What:
Join Lee Hesketh of the Farmland Riparian Interface Stewardship Program (FRISP) and Gregoire Lamoureux of the Slocan River Streamkeepers for a field day this September!

At each session, a local Environmental Farm Planner (EFP) and members of local stream keepers will be present to answer regionally specific questions. This is an opportunity for attendees connect with EFP planners and local groups for longer-term support to carry out riparian projects on their farms.

This field day will include:

  • How to assess your riparian area
  • Why protecting your riparian area is important
  • Low cost, simple solutions that will protect your land from flooding and bank erosion, including live staking, cattle fencing, irrigation intake concepts and other ideas
  • Guidance on where to start, the different pathways for project implementation and sources of funding
