18th Annual Comanche Creek Volunteer Work Weekend
Valle Vidal, NM
Friday, August 2 – Sunday, August 4
Every summer, Quivira organizes a volunteer work weekend in the Comanche Creek Watershed. It’s all about getting muddy in the creek, building community, and hands-on watershed restoration. Come learn from the experts—Bill Zeedyk, Jeffrey Adams, Mark Reineke, Margie Tatro, and Jan-Willem Jansens—and work with the Quivira crew. We’ll be building the traditional Zeedyk-inspired structures with an interesting twist, exploring how Keyline Design principles are relevant to slope wetland restoration. All the new things we’re learning this year will be presented in a technical guide and at a workshop, as part of the 2019 REGENERATE conference. Please join Quivira and restoration experts in work to improve wetland function and keep the creeks flowing in the Valle Vidal!
And Joe Hancock is bringing his horse and dog team back to help get the work done!
Registration is open!
Registration will open in July!
The Quivira Coalition hosts a number of workshops throughout the year for land managers interested in improving or maintaining the health of the land they steward. These workshops usually consist of one to three days on a working ranch where participants are given the opportunity to learn by doing. Topics include erosion control, biological monitoring, pasture management, soil health assessment, plant identification, native seed harvesting and more. Typically, we partner with one or several ranchers and organizations to bring a number of perspectives and types of expertise to the conversation. If you would like to partner with us on a land health workshop, please contact Arielle Quintana at email@example.com.
