Formerly Tamarisk Coalition

You may be familiar with our former name, the Tamarisk Coalition; we changed our name to RiversEdge West in 2018 to reflect the fact that we focus on much more than removing tamarisk. Read the history behind our name change here.

RiversEdge West works with partners to restore riverside habitat.
