My land is being washed away in the creek bed. It is dry in the summer. I'm looking for ways to stop this, but I don't have a lot of money. I want to save my land without getting in the way of the creek.

Without seeing your land, I would suggest that you try planting large shrubbery or fast growing trees and place a lot of creek rocks over the area to slow down the process of erosion. The rocks will work year long while shrubbery takes time to grow.
I agree with the other post, particularly about the rocks. You could try calling a few construction companies, as they sometimes have boulders that they have to haul away and they might donate it to you. Otherwise, call a local extension office or talk with a university horticulture office to see what plant selections would work. Perhaps a local community group would want to take this on as a nature project?
