Help us improve our watershed and aquatic habitat, and learn about erosion and sedimentation control and revegetation methods at these FREE hands-on three day workshops led by Craig Sponholtz, owner of Dryland Solutions, Inc. We will learn to design, site and install rock check dams, media lunas, splash aprons, zuni bowls and armoring. Attend one or both, but be sure to register early because these programs usually fill up quickly.

Excess sediment is a major problem in the creeks and washes in our area, affecting water quality and potential habitat for aquatic and riparian species including loach minnow, spike dace and Chiracahua Leopard frog. By catching silt and stopping or slowing soil loss, we can help alleviate the problem and improve the integrity of our creeks and rivers.
The Double Circle Ranch’s public involvement and education programs are both fun and informational. You will work alongside us as we improve our watershed, and at the end of the weekend you will have new friendships as well as new skills and knowledge of erosion issues that you can easily implement around your own home and property.
Meals will be provided. Bring work gloves; all other supplies will be provided. Bring your tent and camp out for free, or if you prefer a bunk, you may reserve one of our outfitter tents for $60/night. (Maximum of four people to a tent.)
Limit of 30 participants. Free.
Contact us to let us know how many people you’ll be bringing, and we’ll put you on the list!
