Engineering for Conservation Planners and Technicians: Practices to Help Control Gulley and Ephemeral Erosion

Course Description:

The course is designed for new conservation planners and technicians to get an awareness of typical engineering and non-engineering practices used to control gully and ephemeral erosion on Wisconsin cropland.

The learning objectives are:

• Understanding the basic causes of gully and ephemeral erosion.

• Gain a basic understanding of the use of agronomic and engineered practices on cropland to reduce the impact of ephemeral and gully erosion.

• Determine what is considered “stable” in terms of erosion or the potential for erosion.

Space is limited due to field exercise. If you are interested in attending, please contact Drew Zelle at: 920-858-1517 or email drew.zelle@wisconsin.gov
