River restoration in Southwest Iowa–come to a workshop

Do you live in Southwest Iowa? Do you have a river or stream on your land that needs a little TLC?

You can attend one of nine meetings to learn how to improve your creek or stream scheduled in eight counties between June 8–25. Learn more about natural river restoration and stream bank stabilization.

The benefits of river restoration affect the landowner and the community, such as: reducing flooding, reducing sediment and nutrient loading into the water, protecting infrastructure like bridges and roads from erosion, and more!

The meetings are sponsored by Iowa Rivers Revival and Golden Hills RC&D.
For more information about the meetings, contact Lance Brisbois, Golden Hills RC&D, 712-482-3029.
