Willow Staking

9:00am12:00pm

Overview

  • Instructor Open Space Council

By providing a natural root system, Willow Trees help prevent the erosion along riverbanks. This is an excellent hands-on learning opportunity for conservation professionals, land owners, and members of the public interested in ways to combat erosion with natural plant solutions. Volunteers will install the willow stakes directly into the bank using a mallet. Plan to have fun and get muddy!
