Presettlement growth

River landing is an attractive destination year-round. This is a popular location for bird watching, canoeing, fly-fishing access, people-watching, picnicking, reading, sunbathing, etc. River landing has been managed to show its presettlement vegetation.

Sustainable river management

The landing demonstrates a fresh approach to bank stabilization. Heavy use, lack of vegetation, the natural flow of the river, and other factors all contributed to severe degradation of the banks.

A conceptual demonstration

River landing shows the combined use of rubble removal, regrading, erosion control blankets, shoring up with groups of native plants, live stakes, plugs, and seeds.
