Wine Country Connection: Vineyards Using Natives as Cover Crops, Erosion & Sedimentation Solutions
This field session will look at design and selection considerations regarding erosion and sedimentation control in several different areas particular to the Lake Erie Watershed. The geology around the lake is unique with both glacial and lake deposits and we will review a lake bank stabilization project. Factors affecting lake bank stabilization and solutions will be reviewed in this demonstration project. A stream bank stabilization project on a tributary of Lake Erie will be visited and reviewed for bioengineering techniques and plant selection. A production vineyard visit will discuss current trends in cover crops and land preservation. Finally, a working orchard and vineyard will discuss their approach to cover crops and stabilization in agricultural areas.
