Participants will gain knowledge in governing compliance regulations, leadership tactics, and hands-on installation and implementation tools to provide efficient and effective erosion and sediment controls. 

To provide an interactive and personalized learning environment, registration is limited to 50 participants. The fee for this workshop is $450.00 per person.  Those participating in this workshop are encouraged to register and attend the field day on November 18, 2016.
