SOIL EROSION #1

On some areas, unregulated livestock grazing at the turn of the last century led to accelerated soil erosion. Those conditions, though, have now largely been corrected through the application of modern range management and other restoration techniques. The area in the accompanying photoset was contour-trenched, gully-plugged, and reseeded by the Forest Service - -improving rangeland health significantly. Shown is Plate 117 on the North Fork of Chalk Creek in the Pahvant Mountains.
