Consider joining us on Saturday, August 16th at 10am-3pm to participate in a hands-on restoration workshop and guided tour of the Ashland Chequamegon Bay Shoreland Restoration Project (Ashland CBSRP). This workshop will be held on-site at the Memorial Park project site here in Ashland, WI (Bing Map).
The Ashland CBSRP ‘Shoreland Restoration Workshop’ will be a great opportunity to learn about and observe first-hand the results of nearly 4 years of intense restoration along Ashland’s lakefront. We’ve organized the 5-hour workshop period into modules that allow attendees to come and go pending their interests. The day will start with two guided tours, the first about a functional bio-retention basin and the second a full site tour of the restoration project and its current status. Lunch will be a casual brownbag (bring your own) with discourse on the topic of the importance of restoration both locally and regionally. The remaining 2 modules will focus on the identification and control of select invasive plant species, followed by the demonstration of restoration and planting methods to conclude the afternoon. The content of the workshop will be presented in a way that is applicable to many audiences, including those making decisions affecting both public and private lands. Whether you are looking to restore land at the location of your business or in your own backyard, the information gained from this workshop will benefit your efforts.
Join us for an hour or for the full day! We’d love to have you. This is an outdoor event. Casual field clothing plus a light wind-breaker/raincoat/hat is recommended. Go to www.ashlandshorerestore.org to learn more about the project and ecological restoration.
