Free Soil for Water Workshop Sat, Mar 3rd, 9AM-4PM
The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment, the National Center for Appropriate Technology, and the Cypress Creek Partnership offer this great opportunity learn about the relationship between upland and riparian ecosystems and how to monitor soil health across the Cypress Creek watershed.
Workshop presentations will educate participants about riparian and watershed processes with riparian expert Steve Nelle, the benefits of healthy upland areas and management practices with regenerative rancher Jonathan Cobb, and how proper management of these two interconnected ecosystems can build soil health and increase watershed function with grazing expert Peggy Sechrist.
The morning session will be at the Wimberley Community Center in Johnson Hall (14068 Ranch Road 12). The afternoon session will include a tour of the uplands and riparian areas in the Jacobs Well Natural Area (1699 Mt. Sharp Road ). Attendees are encouraged to bring water, good walking shoes and a sack lunch.
