Break up your cold winter days with warm conversation on hot topics.

Presented by: Jennifer Gelb, Restoration Ecologist for Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council.

Bioengineering brings together biological, ecological, and engineering concepts to produce a living, functioning system to prevent erosion. The Tip of the Mitt Watershed Council encourages the use of bioengineering methods on inland lakes and streams to curb erosion, while preventing property loss, protecting water quality, and enhancing riparian habitat. Basic principles and design will be presented, as well as typical costs associated with standard bioengineering projects.

Ice Breaker sessions are FREE and open to the public. Pre-registration is required. Feel free to bring a lunch. Coffee and snack provided. Session is limited to 15 people. For reservations contact Sandy at (231) 347-1181.
