Join Us for an Upcoming Riparian Buffer Webinar

Tuesday, February 02, 2021


A River Runs By It: The Environmental and Societal Benefits of Riparian Buffers live online with Dr. Stephen Souza

Join us for a special presentation by Dr. Stephen Souza to learn about riparian buffers; what they are, why they exist, and how they protect water quality in streams and rivers?

Using real examples in New Jersey, Dr. Souza will review the regulatory definitions of a riparian buffer, and explain the societal and ecological services they provide. This webinar will also cover the importance of restoring stream banks to enhance water quality and promote healthy aquatic life and fish populations.

During this event, we will also hear from Elliott Ruga, Policy Director for the NJ Highlands Coalition about our work to protect critical waterways in northern New Jersey. Following the presentations, we will open the floor to Q&A with these experts.
