Private Road/Driveway Workshop: July 17th at 6PM in Marshfield
Consider all the water bodies you can see from your car as you drive the roads of Vermont-including, perhaps, your own driveway. If the streams, rivers, and lakes are close enough for you to see, they are close enough to be significantly impacted by what occurs on the road surface.
Join us on Monday, July 17th, from 6 - 8:30 pm at Old Schoolhouse Common in Marshfield, at a workshop for private road and driveway owners. Participants will learn more about best management practices that reduce erosion, protect water quality, and save money on road repairs. If you are a property owner and believe your road segment or driveway has an impact on a nearby stream, you may be eligible for technical and cost share assistance. The event is co-hosted by the Cabot, Marshfield, and Plainfield Conservation Commissions and the Plainfield Resiliency Committee with funding from the Lake Champlain Basin Program.
RSVPs are greatly appreciated but not required. Send an RSVP via our contact form or call 882-8276.
