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 working lands where participants are given the opportunity to learn by doing. Topics can include erosion control, biological monitoring, pasture management, soil health assessment, plant identification, native seed harvesting and more! We partner with multiple individuals and groups — agricultural producers, organizations, state and federal agencies, tribes, and others — to bring a diversity of perspectives and expertise to the conversation. If you would like to partner with us on a land health workshop, please contact our workshops team at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Watch Parties for Soil Health – LandPKS app
April 14 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm MDT
Soil Health Tech Tools Watch Party: LandPKS
Wednesdays, April 14 and 28, 2021
The free LandPKS mobile app can help you discover the potential of your land and monitor change over time. Use your mobile device for soil identification, land cover and soil health monitoring, land management and farm record keeping, and more.
LandPKS and The Nature Conservancy recently created a 3 part series on how to use the app to measure and assess changes in land potential. Our watch party will be focused on the third video, the Soil Health Module. So come learn about the app and discuss and ask questions as a group. More information on the full TNC webinar series are available. Between the two watch parties, we will email some 10-20 minute “activities” to try out on your own. At the second watch party, share what worked, didn’t, and discuss questions.
RSVP to receive a confirmation email containing information about joining us via Zoom. Below you’ll find information on the free LandPKS app and where to download it before the party.
It is designed for both Android and iPhone mobile devices. The app was created to put information on climate, soils, and vegetation into the hands of ranchers, farmers, land managers, and land use planners across the globe, and to allow them to characterize these attributes of their own land. LandPKS app has three input modules: LandCover, LandManagement, and LandInfo. LandCover helps users monitor vegetation change, LandManagement is for tracking basic agri-cultural outputs and inputs, and LandInfo uses short, animated, and icon-based tutorials to help the user characterize soil properties and limitations. It connects users to cloud-based storage, global databases, and models, and it provides a system for storing and accessing user data and for sharing data, information, and knowledge.
