This comprehensive riparian buffer training program includes 3 sessions. Participants must attend all sessions to earn the CBLP-Buffers certificate, however, there is an a la carte option to register for the first “Riparian Buffer Basics” webinar, alone , and the Urban Buffer Design Webinar is an add on option, not required for the certificate.

The certificate course is comprised of a series of videos, webinars, and in-person field workshops. Pre-class emails, and logistics will come from Katie@cblpro.org – please add this to your address book so you don’t miss these details.

Workshop registration fees under $100 are non-refundable. If you must cancel, upon request, we will issue a credit equaling the cost of the class for another CBLP event. Workshop registration is transferable to another individual.
