2018 E&SC Field Day Workshops

No Events Found

This one (1) day workshop is being offered in two different locations this year!

TRAINING FOR PROFESSIONALS WORKING IN soils, erosion control, water quality, public works, engineering, roads, planning, and consulting!

Sediment is the world’s #I pollutant. Soil moved by erosion can be harmful to our drinking water resources, our fish and wildlife, and can impact our quality of life. We all need to know our options for both controlling sediment and for designing and installing more effective long term erosion control solutions. This field day is a unique combined effort between the private and public sectors to share information and promote a better understanding of the latest tools available to all who are entrusted with protecting our precious soil and water resources. The day will start with classroom sessions and then move outdoors for small group sessions in a hands-on demonstration setting. Our goal is to provide information that is immediately useful to all who attend.

$40 Members & Government Staff (Public Sector)

$50 Non-Members & Private Sector

Free Coffee & Pastries for the morning sessions and LUNCH all included!
