Landscape Practices for Property Owners:

This workshop is intended for those with an interest in owning or managing forest or streamside properties in Marin County’s San Geronimo Valley. 

This workshop will provide homeowners with practical tools and resources to foster stream health and manage their forested parcels.  We will  introduce avenues for technical and financial assistance for homeowners. The workshop includes a field trip to sites demonstrating stream management.  Participants will be encouraged to exchange experiences and ask questions.
