Join the good folks at DeHaven Ranch for a fun-filled day of field-based conversations about management challenges, strategies, and tools to bring back to your own restoration sites!
1. Provide an opportunity for learning between land owners and land managers around key restoration topics, including: (i) using grazing to improve land health: (ii) conducting riparian restoration to improve water & soil management; (iii) and recovering the land after fire scarring.
2. Identify how lessons learned can be applied in participants’ respective restoration projects.
3. Gain better understanding of who is doing what in the region and explore future opportunities for collaboration.
What is a cross-visit? A cross-visit is a structured field visit where folks from one location are invited to get a hands on look at projects conducted by their peers and neighbors. Field sites become a forum for productive exchange as attendees are invited and encouraged to share their own lessons and suggestions with more broad audiences.
What is the Cross-Watershed Network (XWN)? XWN is a group of Southwestern watershed practitioners who see the value in peer-to-peer exchange and relationship building across geographies. These folks come together to build opportunities for practitioners to meet and problem solve with their peers in other watersheds, effectively linking initiatives across larger landscapes.
