From Mollie Walton,PhD, Land and Water Program Director


Grassy Creek2 Web
Looking back at the last twelve months, I'm astounded at all the work that was accomplished for land health and grateful for the new friends that we made while sharing in this good effort. I want to thank all of our workshop participants and all of the speakers and instructors who spent their precious time with Quivira this year.

In 2014, Quivira hosted 294 attendees at four different workshops. At our Comanche Creek volunteer workshop, we accomplished the rewetting of a slope wetland complex. Two weeks after the workshop--as I was conducting the post-project monitoring at an area that had been drying and losing its wetland vegetation cover--I could barely walk across the area. My dog was nearly swallowed by the rewetted peat soils of a fen. By the time I put down the camera to drag him out, he was up to his handsome neck in black, wet peat! Our collective actions stored a lot of water in these wetland soils at Grassy Creek...dog-swallowing amounts!
