St. Vrain Tamarisk Removal Volunteer Event

Wildlands Restoration Volunteers
May 22nd, 2019
Boulder, CO

Join Wildlands Restoration Volunteers for an upcoming volunteer opportunity!

Enjoy panoramic views of the Front Range and heal a local area deeply impacted by the 2013 flood! In the aftermath of the flood, millions of tamarisk seedlings germinated, which pose a major threat to the watershed should they mature. Volunteers will continue work from the past few years, removing tamarisk through hand pulling, weed wrenching, and cut & stump treatment with herbicide.

Notes: Their project is located on St Vrain Creek, just east of the Boulder/Weld County line, where the Sept 2013 flood breached several lakes and carved a new channel.
Tamarisk (aka Salt Cedar) has devastated watersheds throughout the west, costing billions of dollars in lost habitat, lost water, and lost electricity.
