Join Camp Shaver and the Quivira Coaltion to learn site-specific restoration techniques and environmental education activities for youth.

YMCA's Camp Shaver looms large in the memories of many New Mexicans who have attended the camp or stayed at the camp facilities with other groups. It is a beautiful property surrounded by tall trees and bordered by the Jemez River. Over the decades, the property has been loved by many running feet and much running water.

Quivira will hosted a two-day workshop in conjunction with YMCA Camp Shaver to begin the implementation of an erosion control plan which will be started during the workshop and continued over the years by campers until the full plan has been implemented.

YMCA Camp Shaver in the Jemez Mountains is the winner of the 2016 Quivira Land Health Workshop funded by the Paul H. Johanson Fund!

In 2016, Quivira's Land and Water Program will work with many collaborators to scale up our restoration efforts in New Mexico. Although in the early stages, the effort is gaining momentum. We will post project updates as they become available.

Please check back soon and subscribe to our newsletter for restoration workshops in 2016. We are planning a fall workshop at Red Canyon Reserve, a Comanche Creek Volunteer Weekend, a plant identification day at Twin Willows Ranch, and the 2016 Quivira Land Health Workshop.
