Backyard Buffer Design Workshop

Thursday, February 22, 2024

We think a lot about riparian buffers out on farms or on large, rural properties.  But what about peoples’ backyards in cities and towns?  Certainly, a small backyard buffer has different design considerations compared to its country cousins.  Join Rockbridge Conservation as we co-host an upcoming workshop that will provide hands-on experience with conducting a site assessment and designing a backyard buffer in Lexington, VA.  The workshop will be facilitated by the Upper & Middle James Riparian Consortium partners along with Nicola McGoff from Wild Ginger Field Services and David Hirschman with Hirschman Water & Environment. The buffer design will complement a streambank restoration on the property designed by Louise Finger from the Virginia Department of Wildlife Resources. 

This project is co-hosted by Rockbridge Conservation and is part of the Upper & Middle James Riparian Consortium’s Streambank Stabilization Learning Journey.  For questions, please email Amber Ellis at
