Hi Watershed Workers,
I just wanted to bring to your attention these two newish Land and Water Stewardship Guides published by Sanctuary Forest & written by Kyle Keegan with wonderful graphics rendered by his brother Evan Walbridge. http://www.sanctuaryforest.org/got-stewardship-guides/ <http://www.sanctuaryforest.org/got-stewardship-guides/>
Land Stewardship Guide: Reducing Runoff and Increasing Infiltration in the Mediterranean Climate of Northen California
Water Stewardship Guide: Conserving and Storing Water to Benefit Streamflows and Fish in North Coast Creeks and Rivers
I think that they created a really accessible and pragmatic document here covering a number of watershed recovery issues and solutions – especially for upland flow reduction/infiltration, erosion control/headcut mitigation, forest thinning/fuel loads, gully brush packing, roads, water storage and many other important practices for helping keep more soil & water in land while yielding clean and copious water for creeks, coho and communities.
Have a read – I think you will find it informative and inspirational – Nice work Kyle, Evan and Sanctuary Forest Friends!
Slow it Spread it Sink it – but ya gotta first Think It!
