Tamarisk & Russian Olive Removal
Colorado River, Glenwood Springs
Saturday, October 2
Help reverse the spread of Tamarisk and Russian Olive along the Colorado River in Glenwood Springs. These invasive noxious plants destroy native habitat in the riparian zone critical to 80% of our wildlife. Phase II of this project will focus on both banks of the Colorado River between West Glenwood and the hot springs.
The October work day marks Phase II of the collaborative project with the city of Glenwood Springs. Additionally, RFOV’s effort is part of the collaborative efforts to raise awareness about river health during the month of October, which has been declared as “Colorado River Month” by the Roaring Fork Conservancy.
Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and our project partners – City of Glenwood Springs, Garfield County, LoVa Trails, Trout Unlimited, and others – will provide the tools, materials, leadership, and some great rewards including a dinner at the end of the day.
