Land Health Workshops

Join us on the land to learn techniques for building soil, reducing erosion, restoring biodiversity, and regenerating ecosystems.

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 Arielle Quintana at arielle@quiviracoalition.org.
