Tijeras Creek Remediation Project

  • A. Montoya Elementary School Parking Lot 24 Public School Rd. Tijeras, New Mexico (map)

Help our local environment! Querencia Green, winner of our January 2015 grant, has been working with James Brooks and his design and installation team, experts in herbicide application, and volunteers to build a system of basins and berms that improves Tijeras Creek’s water quality and solves stormwater management problems. 

Querencia Green organizes work parties to provide hands-on experiences for students and others with stormwater harvesting/green infrastructure, the suppression of invasive plant species, habitat restoration, and improvements in soil health and stabilization. We will know our specific project as we get closer and the winter/spring transition occurs.

Supplies: Bring sunscreen, your 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. Kids are welcome.

Facilities:  Portable toilet facility is on site.
