Diagnosing Streams: Flood Protection Remedies for Farm and Forested Land

July 16, 2015 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Christine Hatch, UMass Extension Assistant Professor, Geosciences, and Benjamin Warner, UMass PostDoc, Geosciences will present the latest science on “diagnosing streams” and provide best practices for farm and forest land managers to protect their land from the effects of stream flooding. Their goal is to help agriculture, forestry, and rural communities develop greater resiliency during extreme weather events. Christine and Benjamin are members of a New England “Fluvial Geomorphology” research group. The group has studied successes among restoration responses to Hurricane Irene in Massachusetts and Vermont and will be sharing findings from this work with Agricultural Service Providers in Massachusetts.  Register here.
