Riparian Area Management Handbook
This handbook provides a resource of riparian-related information to the general public and technical staffs in counties and conservation districts.
The handbook begins with background information on the function and importance of riparian areas and is followed by a chapter describing the ecoregions of Oklahoma. The balance of the handbook focuses on specific aspects of riparian management, including grazing, wildlife, vegetation, and channel stability. Members of the technical review group and the technical staff, drawing on their unique areas of expertise, authored chapters. This handbook also contains a stand-alone chapter on the Riparian Buffer System (RBS), which is a blueprint for an engineered stream protection system.
