The NWAI repaired a 40m section of eroding riverbank bank on Nashwaak Valley Farms in Penniac. We installed a rock toe to prevent undercutting and re-sloped the bank to allow water to spill over into the floodplain. We will plant native grasses, shrubs, and trees.
It is recognized by climate change scientists that one of the most effective ways to limit the negative impacts of climate change on freshwater resources is through maintaining naturalized and well-vegetated shorelines with native plants that are resistant to the impacts of a changing climate.
