June/July 2016- LCRWCA partnered with the The Hopi Raincatchers, Black Mesa Water Coalition and Waterock, l3c for several workshops The workshops are titled, "Using rocks to mitigate and stop erosion." The 50 attendees had the opportunity to learn different techniques of utilizing rocks to help in the reduction of soil loss, to increase vegetation cover, and to help the water permeate into the ground.
The Hopi Raincatcher program was one of the 100 selected from 591 projects worldwide which are “making a difference on the Planet”. It is the only U.S. activity selected for this honor! The Competition was organized by the French Government following its hosting of the COP21 U.N. Summit on Climate Change in Paris, December 2015
