Restoring Critical Riparian Habitat in the Age of Invasives

Join us for a talk from RiversEdge West's Education Coordinator, Cara Kukuraitis.  Tamarisk is an invasive plant that’s been taking over critical riparian areas, displacing much (in some places, all!) of the native vegetation.  How did this plant invade so rapidly, what other impacts does it have on our ecosystem, and what is being done to manage it and other invasive plants in the face of a changing climate?
