In August, the Bushkill Stream Conservancy published Establishing Streamside Buffer Areas in Your Park or Community, a pamphlet intended to the economic, ecological, and aesthetic benefits of sustainable riparian buffers. The colorful and informative brochure has 20-pages of case studies, step-by-step guidelines, and tips for managing high-maintenance and fragile habitats. Municipal maintenance employees will find the pamphlet helpful, but anyone with an interest in local parks, streams, and environment will find this guide and its message of use.

Support for this project came from the Bushkill Stream Conservancy, Lehigh and Northampton county conservation districts, DCNR, Jacobsburg Environmental Education Center, Lehigh Valley Greenways, and the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor.
