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.

 A bound and laminated copy for field use is available in our store.

CONTROL DE EROSION GUIA DE CAMPO

By Craig Sponholtz and Avery C. Anderson Sponholtz

La pérdida de suelo causada por el flujo de agua disminuye la fertilidad, la productividad y la capacidad de recuperación de la tierra.
Esta guía fue creada para capacitar a los propietarios y administradores de tierras para que tomen medidas y reviertan la erosión del suelo en cada oportunidad que se presente. Estos métodos promueven la cosecha y el almacenamiento de la escorrentía y el sedimento con estructuras basadas en formas naturales que inician procesos regenerativos duraderos.
