The pace of stream and riparian restoration in the Chesapeake Bay region’s agricultural landscapes continues to accelerate, as state and local partners look to qualified stream restoration projects, riparian buffers, livestock exclusion, and associated practices to deliver significant contributions towards regional nutrient and sediment reduction goals.

As part of the 2021 All-Bay Agriculture Network Forum presented by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation’s Chesapeake Bay Stewardship Fund, this webinar session by John Jackson, Ph.D., aimed to help the region’s agricultural conservation and ecosystem restoration practitioners reorient ongoing stream and riparian restoration efforts towards local stream health, aquatic habitat improvements, and watershed-scale approaches to achieve local restoration goals.
