Riparian Restoration Workshop Follow-Up

The Tamarisk Coalition, in partnership with the Middle Colorado Watershed Council, Garfield County, and the South Side and Mount Sopris Conservation Districts, organized a multi-day program for the community to engage around riparian restoration opportunities in the watershed. 
Two Glenwood Springs High School classes were visited by restoration professionals in the classroom to learn about riparian area ecology, function, impacts from invasives, and basic principles of restoration.  This was followed by two afternoons on Mamm Creek trying out the restoration techniques first hand.  Land owners, managers and watershed enthusiasts gathered for a half-day workshop in Silt to exchange information on riparian restoration issues specific to the middle Colorado River and to discussed riparian restoration planning and implementation at a watershed scale. Copies of all workshop presentations can be accessed here.
