Enjoy this short virtual tour with EcoFlight and White River Partnership members, Utah State University and the Bureau of Land Management, as they survey the riparian habitat of the White River from above. 

The White River and its tributaries provide crucial habitat for native fish including several endangered and endemic species such as the Colorado pikeminnow and razorback sucker. Large herds of elk, deer, and other animals depend on the White River corridor for habitat and forage. 
The health of the White River is also vital to the socio-economic well-being of local communities that depend on it for agricultural production, industry, recreation, aesthetics, and cultural uses.
 
The lower White River's riparian areas are becoming increasingly dominated by invasive plants such as tamarisk and Russian olive. These trees increase the risk of wildfire, diminish aquatic and riparian habitats, reduce natural river functions, and impede recreational, agricultural, and cultural uses of the river.
 
RiversEdge West leads the White River Partnership, a collaborative of agencies and landowners along the White River who are working together to improve the White River's riparian habitat.
