Learn about the improvements on the stream bank and ideas for future expansion.
Tijeras Creek Remediation Project
DATE & TIME: Sunday, September 13, 9 am – 1 pm
LOCATION: 24 Public School Rd., Tijeras (map below)
Crews will work on these items (dependent on soil moisture conditions):
- Ground preparation and seeding
- Remove invasive plants
- Repair and construct rock spillways to slow stormwater.
- Soil sponges.
Over the past several years, James Brooks has been working with his design and installation team, experts in herbicide application, and volunteers to build a system of basins, swales and berms that improve Tijeras Creek’s water quality and solves stormwater management problems.
Upcoming work parties will provide hands-on experience with stormwater harvesting and green infrastructure, the suppression of invasive plant species, habitat restoration, and improvements in soil health and stabilization.
Schedule: We will start at 9:00 am at the parking lot with an orientation.
Supplies: Bring sunscreen, your full water bottle and work gloves. Soilutions / Adaptive Terrain Systems will provide necessary tools. If you have tools, bring for your use.
Work Requirements: Streambank remediation is a moderately strenuous activity. Please wear pants, long-sleeve shirt, hat and work boots.
Facilities: Portable toilet facility is on site.
Hosted by Soilutions / Adaptive Terrain System with Querencia Green.
