November 4, 2013

On Wednesday, Nov. 6, conservationists from across Delaware will meet to share their land restoration stories through site visits, presentations and discussions on best management practices, landowner stories, funding sources and program benefits.

The workshop is supported by the Delaware Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control Division of Watershed Stewardship, Watershed Assessment and Management Section and the Delaware Coastal Training Program, and takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

DNREC invites conservationists to attend and share their land restoration stories while learning about others. Vans depart at 9 a.m. sharp from the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, 1221 College Park Drive, Dover. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.

The morning session features a driving tour of restoration projects throughout Kent County. Impacts and improvements to water quality will be presented. Participants will visit several restoration sites to view first-hand how the projects are accomplished and how they impact water quality.

The afternoon will be spent implementing and reviewing lessons learned through hands-on projects and discussions. The afternoon session will include presentations and discussions to highlight features and benefits of various restoration programs and to review principles of site restoration.
