The intention of this guide is to provide background and resources for groups of youth seeking to support existing riparian buffer restoration projects. Buffer maintenance is a vital part of a successful restoration project. Youth involved in learning about water quality and environmental issues can play a significant role in helping with these maintenance activities.
