Tamarisk Removal along the Dolores River

Dolores River Restoration Partnership 

RiversEdge West, on behalf of the Dolores River Restoration Partnership, was awarded a grant of $19,386 to support improving riparian habitat along the Dolores River. RiversEdge West partnered with Southwest Conservation Corps (SCC) and the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), along with a handful of volunteers to plant 95 native plants across 8 acres of a recently burned cottonwood gallery. Additionally, a Conservation Corps strike team removed 1.85 acres of dense tamarisk infestation, which can be seen in the photos below! RiversEdge has provided a final report.
