Soil erosion site

An example of soil erosion should be found in the immediate area of the training site. You should look for gullies formed as a result of water erosion that can accommodate gully plugs. The trainees will need to install gully plugs and examine indigenous vegetation in the area to see if plants, shrubs, etc., have established themselves naturally and could be used as a deterrent of further erosion. Remember to contact the land owner for permission to install gully plugs.
