Whether you are building a “living fence” along your property or your aim is to improve water quality by reducing erosion and run-off along your waterfront, a buffer is what you need! Vegetated buffers absorb water and nutrients, trap excess soil, provide wildlife habitat, and mimic natural systems to create a dynamic landscape to enjoy in all seasons.

Rebecca Jacobs, Education Coordinator/Knox-Lincoln Soil & Water Conservation District and proprietor of Gabriella's Gardens will present this slide program and answer any questions you may have about the benefits of establishing a buffer on your property.
