Annual Comanche Creek volunteer camping restoration weekend - August 8, 9, 10
Wetland Restoration in Grassy Creek

Register below for this FREE volunteer work weekend. Arrive the afternoon of Thursday the 7th and leave the morning of Sunday the 10th. If you can only make either the Friday or Saturday workday, we still appreciate the help! This summer's workshop will be held to restore the middle section of Grassy Creek in the Comanche Creek watershed in the Valle Vidal. We will be working with Craig Sponholtz of Watershed Artisans, Inc. (formerly Dryland Solutions, Inc.). The work will involve lots of sod moving to plug small headcuts and shore up the larger restoration structures. Bill Zeedyk of Zeedyk Ecological Consulting will also be at the workshop to help direct restoration efforts.

Shuree Lodge Web
Camping location for the evenings of the 7th through the 9th is the grounds around the old Shuree Lodge. Quivira will provide toilet facilities; however, this is not a developed camping site, so prepared to bring your own food, water for drinking and dishes, etc.

Quivira offers an optional included meal plan for a small fee ($30.00 total). You must register for this by the deadline. It is not an option on site. Scroll down for the details.
