Field trip to visit erosion control structure work of Joe Quiroga, Ranch Manager at Jelks Ranch, San Rafael Valley/Elgin. Participants saw effective erosion control and habitat stabilization work conducted for years by Joe, increasing water retention and habitat conditions on a watershed-wide scale. In one pool we found a small water-loving creature [Triops sp] considered to be the core ancestor of all modern insects.
