Riverwise Assessor Training 1-21-17

Event Date: 1/21/17 at 9:00 am Location: Westover Baptist Church 1000 Westover Hills Blvd, Richmond, VA 23225

Alliance for the Chesapeake Bay and Reedy Creek Coalition are preparing implement the Riverwise assessment program for homeowners.  We need others to join us in the effort and hope that you may be interested in attending a training session on Saturday, January 21.  We already have some answers to questions you may have….

Why do an assessment?

The purpose is to evaluate individual properties for impact on the watershed and to offer tips on reducing stormwater and pollution runoff.  We also evaluate your property for how “wildlife friendly” it is and to what extent your landscape practices can help restore natural ecosystems that contribute to a healthy watershed.

Who is the training session for?

Training is for those who want to learn how to do assessments for others in the neighborhood.  Each assessment requires visiting homeowners who have applied for the assessment and usually takes 1 hour or a little more to complete.  These can be done as your time allows.

Are there any special requirements?

The only requirement is the desire to improve our watershed! The training will cover what you need to know.  Also, you don’t have to do this alone; you can start by going with someone who is experienced.
