River Management Workshop

September 20th, 2018
Rio Blanco County Fairgrounds
Meeker, CO
Workshop for White River riparian landowners and managers to learn about local, state, and federal resources available for river and riparian restoration. The first half of the day will focus on local river property management challenges and best management practices to alleviate them. There will be a session on funding opportunities for private landowners of riparian corridors. Then, we’ll have updates on White River planning and research efforts from local stakeholders over lunch, which will be provided to registrants. In the afternoon we will hear our downstream (Utah) neighbors present what they are doing to combat Russian olive and tamarisk infestations and why. We plan to make the case that White River riparian landowners can most effectively garner resources by collaborating with each other and approaching funders with a regional, comprehensive framework. RiversEdge West will educate participants about how to achieve this, and how to do it using local resources.
Workshop topics include:
  • Invasive Vegetation Control
  • Riparian Buffers and other BMPs
  • Agricultural & Conservation Easements
  • Tamarisk Beetle
  • Funding for Vegetation Management
  • Update from the Algae Working Group
  • White River Fisheries
  • Watershed Stakeholder Development
