GRAND JUNCTION, COLO.- A Riverbank Restoration project is underway to help tame invasive plants that currently pose a threat to the Grand Junction stream banks.

Tamarisk and Russian olive plants have formed dense thickets along the rivers that crowd out native plants, degrade wildlife habitat and cut off access to the water.
On February 18, 19 and 20 the Tamarisk Coalition will host a conference at Colorado Mesa University. It's goal is to bring scientists and land managers to share the latest discoveries on how to tame invasive plants and address other challenges to healthy stream banks.
To supplement this conference, Edgewater Brewery will host a fundraiser for the Tamarisk Coalition from February 17-20 from 11:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.
With every $2 beer purchased of Lands End Amber and Standing Wave Pale Ale, $1 will be donated to the project.

Edgewater Brewery is located at 905 Struthers Ave, Grand Junction.
