French Creek Valley
Tim gave a interesting speech about his organization that helps to make riparian buffers. A reparian buffer is an area around a stream that helps to "filter" out all the bad things that could harm the delicate environment of the stream. His organization helps to create these riparian buffers to get rid of the pollutants like excess fertilizer that get into the runoff that gets into the stream by accident. His organization tries to confront streamfront property owners for permission to make these areas. It was interesting hearing about a natural way for the environment to filter out bad chemicals.
