Enhancing soil health and rewilding our landscapes one stream at a time

April 24 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Stream and floodplain restoration has become a billion-dollar industry in the United States (US) and is a popular management practice in the mid-Atlantic US. Floodplains are being restored to enhance hydrologic connectivity, reduce sediment erosion, and enhance runoff nitrogen removal via processes like denitrification. While these restorations have yielded important water quality benefits, much of the restoration focus is on enhancing stream form and function and very little attention is given to soil health on the restored floodplains. Compacted soils and poor soil conditions can undermine ecosystem functions and services and prevent the restoration from attaining its full potential. In this webinar, we will discuss how floodplain soil health can be protected and enhanced and present specific strategies and practices that need to be implemented. Healthy soils and floodplains will not only provide valuable water quality and aquatic habitat benefits, but will also contribute towards rewilding our landscapes and improving human health.
