Maryland Manual

  
In 1997-1998, Maryland Cooperative Extension conducted a series of two-day workshops on riparian buffer systems. These workshops included information on stream assessment, groundwater hydrology, nutrient cycling, plant and animal communities, and riparian restoration. Workshop participants were given two notebooks of resource materials - the Chesapeake Bay Riparian Handbook and the Maryland Riparian Buffer Systems Manual. Here we have listed the contents of the Maryland Manual.
