Texas has over 191,000 miles of waterways with riparian areas - the green vegetation zones along creeks, rivers, and lakes - that provide great economic, social, cultural, and environmental value to the state.

Recommendations given herein are focused on central and eastern Texas and include restoration techniques, plant species selection, monitoring methods, and grazing and cropland management. (28 Pages)
