2013 Conference Testimonials 

"As a land manager working for the State of Colorado, I rely extensively on the Tamarisk Coalition to provide access to credible, current riparian restoration research and science. The Tamarisk Coalition conferences and research symposiums provide the most comprehensive venues in the West for researchers, scientists, and land managers to exchange ideas and learn from one another. Personally, the Tamarisk Coalition is an invaluable resource, providing me with opportunities to augment and improve upon my skills as a land manager."
-Shelly Simmons, Colorado State Forest Service 
"The annual conferences organized by the Tamarisk Coalition provide a critical role in bringing together riparian managers, researchers and conservationists from around the country to share information and develop coherent strategies for managing invasive riparian plants and promoting conservation of riparian biodiversity in western North America."
-Tom Dudley, University of California, Santa Barbara
