Saturday, April 2, 9:30 am-12:30 pm, Bioengineering Tools for Erosion Control. Workshop presented by Lech Naumovich, Golden Hour Restoration Institute
Join us for our 2nd Winter Workshop of the 2016 Season. Lech will take a pragmatic look at an eroding slope at Waterfall Creek in Garber Park and plan rehabilitation efforts from site analysis to monitoring outcomes. Among the topics to be covered: define the problem, introduce the site and selection process, identify the goals and success criteria, bioengineering techniques (spiling, living fascines, willow/perennial staking, erosion fabrics), native mulching, and monitoring approaches.
Meet at the Evergreen Lane entrance to Garber Park at 9:30. Come early for coffee, tea, and snacks and to meet fellow workshop participants.
Directions: The closest address is 144 Evergreen Lane, Berkeley. From Ashby Avenue, take Alvarado Road to Slater Lane, turn right onto Evergreen Lane. The park is at the end of the street. A map and directions can be found at garberparkstewards.org. Click on directions in the menu bar.
All skill levels are welcome. No previous experience is necessary. Dress in layers you can get dirty, wear sturdy shoes, and bring a refillable water bottle. We provide tools, water and snacks. We work in light rain; downpour will cancel.
