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.

We need to get a head count in advance!  Answer the Poll below or visit Facebook Tijeras Creek and look for this event.  Questions?

Facilities:  Portable toilet facility is on site.

Hosted by Soilutions / Adaptive Terrain System with Querencia Green.

Financial support provided by PNM Foundation.
