Streamside management

A Streamside Management workshop is set for Saturday, April 19, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Cibolo Nature Center & Farm located in Boerne.

This in-depth workshop by wildlife biologist Steve Nelle will cover management techniques that reduce erosion, enhance wildlife habitat, and improve water quality. Recently retired from the Natural Resources Conservation Service, Nelle is considered one of Texas’ foremost experts on managing riparian areas.

Participants also will learn techniques to repair damaged stream sides, encourage healthy, productive ecosystems, and help maintain stream flows during drought. The workshop will include a visit to Cibolo Creek to observe healthy stream dynamics in the field.

The workshop costs $35, $30 for Cibolo Nature Center members with advance registration at www.cibolo.org/calendar.

The Cibolo Nature Center & Farm is located on 160 acres of natural lands at Boerne City Park. For more information, call 830-249-4616.
