At BR we pride ourselves in working at every level of the restoration process. At the foundation of every successful restoration effort is the strengthening of the physical processes that drive ecosystem change.
Restoring Physical Processes
Borderlands Restoration has developed a unique approach to ecosystem restoration based on the experiences of Cuenca los Ojosand other restoration efforts in the region. CLO has constructed tens of thousands of berms, gabions and small rock dams to restore natural water flow. These structures slow the flow of water and stabilize creeks, increase infiltration, and allow sediments to accumulate. Despite the drought conditions of the past decade, streams are once again flowing and vegetation and wildlife are returning.
