Erosion Control Field Guide

By Craig Sponholtz and Avery C. Anderson Sponholtz

This field guide is intended to inform those who depend on the soil and its life-giving properties. This guide discusses ways to regenerate soil so that it holds more water, supports more vegetation, and reduces soil erosion. In the end, soil conservation will reduce “non-point source pollution” in surface watercourses. This guide focuses on affordable and replicable techniques based on natural processes and advocates the use of low-cost and locally available, natural materials.
