A small way to protect the source of our drinking water at your home:
Upstate Forever is partnering with Clemson Extension to host a streambank repair workshop on Wednesday, March 1st from 10am-12pm. This workshop, hosted at Boscobel Golf Course in Pendleton, will give you hands-on experience with repairing eroded streambanks from stormwater runoff. You will gain a better understanding of how these practices protect surrounding trees, slow runoff, prevent unwanted chemicals from entering waterways, and how it all protects essential wildlife habitat.
Please RSVP by February 24th by emailing Rebecca Wade, Clean Water Associate, at firstname.lastname@example.org. RSVP as soon as possible as registrations are first come, first served, and we request that all organizations limit their registrations to just three participants (any additional registrant will be added to a waitlist) because this will be a small group.
This streambank repair workshop is being implemented as a best management practice (BMP) in accordance with our watershed-based plan for the Three and Twenty Creek Watershed. Therefore, this project was funded wholly or in part by the US EPA under a Section 319 Grant through SC DHEC to reduce bacteria, nutrient, and sediment pollution in the Three and Twenty Creek Watershed.
