**Please join us for lunch**
Presented by the Lavaca-Navidad River Authority (LNRA) in cooperation with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality Clean Rivers Program
Texans love our many miles of beautiful streams. But how well do you understand the inner workings of creeks and rivers? This workshop will focus on the interaction of hydrology, flooding, sediment movement, vegetation and practical management.
Participants will learn:
- Why floods and floodplains are important
- How healthy riparian areas improve water quality
- How groundwater is connected to streamflow
- Why riparian vegetation is important
- What hinders the proper working of a creek or river
- How landowners can be good stewards of riparian areas
After this workshop, you will appreciate creeks, rivers, and riparian areas in a new and different way. The workshop will be beneficial to landowners, conservation officials, water managers, teachers, students as well as the general public.
Workshop and BBQ lunch (from Mustang BBQ) are free, but please RSVP to Sylvia Balentine at LNRA either via e-mail sbalentine@LNRA.org or via phone (361) 782-5229. We hope to see you there!
