Dolores River Restoration and Tamarisk Removal

Wildlands Restoration Volunteers, Audubon Rockies, Colorado Water Conservation Board, RiversEdge West
September 10th, 2018 to September 11th, 2018
Gateway, CO
Spend a few days camped out under the cottonwoods along the spectacular Dolores River with us, while you're there, maybe kill some Tamarisk. That's what we'll be doing. Year 5 working down in this part of the state to eradicate the invasive water hogging, earth salting Tamarisk tree. Volunteers will cut small trees or regrowth of previously cut larger trees and may also cage some Cottonwoods to protect them from marauding beavers. 

This is a really fun project, known far and wide for the fabulous food, the awe-inspiring scenery, and the colorful local history. Sign up for the geographically closer Uncompahgre Plateau Sage Grouse Restoration Project from September 6-9th and make a whole week of it. Anyone who signs up for both projects will get to ride in the WRV carpool and go on a special off-day adventure with us!

You can expect an awesome Monday-Tuesday event of Tamarisk removal and riparian planting/restoration on the beautiful Dolores River in Gateway Canyon.
