What are Riparian Areas?
Welcome to the World of Riparian Areas
Innovative farmers take action to plant riparian areas
Folks, They Have Done it Again!
"Riparian areas" or "riparian zones" are the ecosystems found along waterways including the banks of rivers, streams and creeks.
Adams Farm
6.4 acres of land has been planted into riparian area
Having a healthy riparian area has a range of water quality and ecological benefits.
The Garvey-Glenn Post
Prevent erosion
Trap and filter runoff
Provide bank and in stream stability
Reduce the impact of flooding

Best management practices (BMP's), like riparian plantings, are becoming more common in the Garvey-Glenn. For the best results, we have to use a variety of BMP's together.
Snobelen Farm
They planted an area of flood plain and erodable slope with over 1000 trees!

Hayden Farm
Pasture along a watercourse was retired
Approximately 900 trees were planted over 1.8 acres

Riparian areas serve as buffers in agricultural systems, separating fields from watercourses.

Riparian areas in the Garvey-Glenn Watershed
Mr. and Mrs. Miltenberg planted approximately 13 acres of trees on sloped land boardering the Garvey Creek in the 1980's.

-Mr. Miltenberg

The Miltenbergs have noticed that the area planted has reduced erosion and washouts along the creek.
They recommend that any farmer who has similar land should really consider planting it with trees.
Provide shelter and food for aquatic life
Help regulate water temperature
