Streambank Stabilization, Habitat Enhancement Workshops in March

The Fish and Boat Commission will sponsor streambank stabilization and habitat enhancement workshops on March 12 in Lycoming College and March 13 at DEP’s Moshannon District Mining Office.

The Fish and Boat Commission has been installing habitat enhancement structures, which also provide significant bank protection, since 1988 and this may be just the ticket for small scale problems.

The Fish and Boat Commission has developed design specifications for structures (mostly log and rock) that stabilize up to 250 linear feet of bank while significantly improving fish habitat. These structures take minimal design, require very limited stream system evaluation, require GP1 permits (which are very simple) and are relatively inexpensive to build.

The workshops will be held--

· March 12 - Lycoming College, Room G11 Heim Science Building, Lycoming County, 7-9 p.m.; and

· March 13 - DEP Moshannon District Office, Philipsburg, Centre County, 7-9 p.m.
