Copies Still Available: Landowner Guide to Buffer Success

In 2021, Pennsylvania Conservation Reserve Enhancement Program (CREP) partners updated the “Landowner Guide to Buffer Success” that was last published in 2007. Like the previous guide, this one is set up calendar-style with pages for notes. In addition, the guide features key tasks by season, tips to improve outcomes, example photos, summaries of how riparian forest buffers help streams, and links to resources.

PACD has a few hundred calendar-style guides still available for distribution. Contact Holly Miller at to request copies and to make arrangements to get them to your district.

Financial and other support for the CREP Outreach Program Office is provided by the Pennsylvania Association of Conservation Districts, Inc. through a Growing Greener Watershed Protection grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and with additional support from USDA-NRCS.
