(Fayetteville, N.C.) – The City of Fayetteville’s Engineering Division is pleased to announce that it will be hosting a Streambank Repair Workshop on Tuesday, April 30. This class will be located at the Rowan Street Park Community Building and will begin at 8:30 a.m. This class is expected to fill up fast! Please visit https://www.bae.ncsu.edu/workshops-conferences/srw/ to register.

The City, in partnership with N.C. State University and N.C. Cooperative Extension, is providing this class free of charge to residents so that they can learn how to protect and improve the natural environment by stabilizing streams on their properties. Learn from N.C. State University experts about practical, cost-effective solutions using natural materials and native plants to create a healthy stream-side environment. Participants will take part in a hands-on stream repair exercise, enhancing an eroding streambank using grading, fiber matting and native plants. Participants may want to bring boots, sunscreen, gloves, hats and dress for working outside in a stream. Lunch will be provided.

If you have any questions regarding this workshop, please feel free to email Shauna Haslem at shaslem@ci.fay.nc.us or call the Engineering Division at 910-433-1656.
