Dolores River Riparian Planting

Dolores River Restoration Partnership
November 9th, 2018
Gateway, CO

Restoration Event in Gateway on Friday, November 9, 9am - 3:30pm. We'll plant native plants in the Dolores River riparian corridor- immediately downstream of the bridge over the Dolores River in Gateway. This is part of a multi-year effort by Dolores River Restoration Partnership to enrich the vegetation community of the site, since tamarisk was removed several years ago and a cottonwood gallery has been restored. Any and all volunteers are invited! Come for the morning, afternoon, or stay and plant with us all day! Plants are being grown specifically for the site, and include: New Mexico privet, silver buffaloberry, shadscale, four-wing saltbrush, rabbitbrush, Gambel oak, alkali sacaton, Gardner's saltbrush, fringed sage, winterfat, three-leaf sumac, tall western sage, and sand sage.

Project partners are: National Wild Turkey Federation, Colorado Native Plant Society, BLM Grand Junction Field Office, Gateway School, and Gateway Canyons Resort.

Meet at the dirt parking lot immediately downstream of the bridge over the Dolores River in Gateway! Please BYOBrown Bag Lunch and a trowel or small shovel if you have one!
