Erosion Control Field Day
“A little bit of dirt never hurt anybody,” but a little bit from a jobsite multiplied by the hundreds of jobsites in a watershed can add up quickly. Soil erosion has the potential to harm our drinking water resources, our fish and wildlife resources, and even effect how much treatment wastewater must receive. Erosion Control has changed dramatically over the years and new technologies are constantly in development . Use this workshop to help you stay current on useful practices. This full day training will incorporate both classroom sessions and outdoor, hands on demonstrations in small group settings.
September 11th will be located at NH Audubon Massabesic Center and September 13th will be at Beech Hill Farm. RSVP by August 31st for all locations. The cost is $55. A hot lunch is provided. This course offers 6 credit hours through the NHDES Subsurface Bureau as well as 6 credit hours through EnviroCert International.
