Quivira had a grand time with our neighbors near Bandera, Texas on December 4 and 5 at the Quivira Land Health Workshop hosted by Dorothy and Vick Williams and funded by the Paul H. Johanson Fund.
Over forty dedicated and knowledgeable folks spent a chilly morning in the barn at the Hill Country State Natural Area's Chapas Group Site getting to know one another and listening to some of the critical issues and solutions to restoring and maintaining land health.
Reagan Faught and Leanne Beauxbeannes from the Hill Country State Natural Area led a tour in the late fall sunshine after lunch to show us ongoing management strategies and some of the land health challenges.
Dinner at the Dixie Dude Ranch was delicious and most workshop participants used the opportunity to get to know each other better over a plate of good Texas BBQ.
At the Williams' place on Saturday, we saw the results of Dorothy and Vick's land restoration efforts and benefitted from the considerable collective wisdom present ... and... we moved rocks, surveyed contours and burned seedling juniper.
