Environmental Conservation/ Restoration

Topics to Consider

    • Non-native invasive plant species displacing native speciesEnvironmental Conservation/Restoration
    • Invasive aquatic species transferred to other water bodies on boats, boat trailers etc.
    • The necessity for appropriate barriers (i.e. vegetation) on stream banks
    • Water issues in streams lacking shade (i.e. temperatures too high to support some aquatic species)
    • Land use practices/development (agricultural, industrial, residential) decreasing habitat for wildlife
    • Threatened or endangered species
    • Demonstration gardens (demonstrating sustainable and proper gardening practices)
    • Habitat enhancements (i.e. bird boxes, bee boxes)
