Arid Land Restoration

June 26, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

010 June 26, 10am to 4pm. $60 discounts available

Learn to read the unique landscape of the arid Southwest! With some attention to deposit patterns of soil and organic material and wild plant indicators, you can determine stormwater flow areas that nourish the land, and ones that dehydrate it and create erosion. We will tour the ecological restoration projects on Ampersand’s site, discuss the reasons for each design, and observe success rates. We will also talk plenty about plants! This class will give you an introduction for healing degraded landscapes through mulching, seeding, and creating erosion control and water harvesting structures that create microcimates for moisture and vegetative growth.
