Pacific Northwest Regional Webinar | Erosion Control: A dive into specie selection for the Inland Northwest and Southern Idaho
Group Watch Available!

The Inland Northwest is a diverse landscape of constantly changing topography, micro climates, and annual precipitation levels. In order for everyone to enjoy these areas that we live in, we need to keep the soil in place to the best of our ability. This webinar will explore the ins and outs of various plant material that fit these different niches in regards to erosion control and beautification. The goal is for attendees to walk away feeling more comfortable when making informed decisions on seed specs for erosion applications.

Canada’s National Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection Standard: A Model for North America?

This presentation will take an inside look at the 1st edition of CSA/W202, Erosion and Sediment Control Inspection and Monitoring, to showcase how best practices were harmonized to create a national set of minimum requirements. It will highlight the ability of the standard to streamline project administration and eliminate guess work, and how such requirements lend themselves well to incorporation in to contracts and permits. Finally, the presentation will touch on efforts to drive uptake, plans for future ESC standards, as well as the various aspects of CSA/W202 that might serve as a model for future standardization efforts in the U.S. and elsewhere.

Soil Health for Construction and Revegetation Projects – Sponsored by Profile Products
Group Watch Available!

Healthy soil is a key component of long term erosion control and sustainable vegetation. One of the biggest ongoing challenges facing the erosion control and revegetation industries is the lack of healthy soil as a starting point on a project, as nearly all project sites are stripped down to nutritionally deficient subsoil layers incapable of supporting vegetation. This presentation will provide full details on what constitutes healthy soil in addition to providing comprehensive information about BST’s. Further and more importantly, this presentation will determine if BST are actually impacting soil health. In particular, multiple project sites that have been evaluated for various soil health parameters prior to and after BST application will be presented to determine soil health impacts.
