Short Description of Project
The overall goals of this project are to improve native plant diversity and cover through passive regeneration increasing overall resilience in the landscape along the Colorado and Green Rivers through a holistic and collaborative process. This work will address effects of tamarisk tree decline since tamarisk leaf beetle establishment in 2004, and the nearly annual defoliation events since that date. An "all hand all lands" approach is the goal for this proposal.
A brief summary of the project. Identify the output (e.g. Improve 500 acres of deer winter range by chaining and seeding a pinyon-juniper woodland), not the expected outcome (e.g. Increase carrying capacity of deer winter range).
Short Description of Project Location
The project is located in the river corridors along the Colorado River and the Green River, with a few projects in a few important side drainages also included where projects have been in process through collaborations in the SE Utah Riparian Partnership over the past 10 years (Castle Creek, Kane Creek and Courthouse Wash), as well as drainages along the Green where collaborators have been implementing riparian restoration during that time.
Provide general location information. For example, "Five miles east of Sterling on the Manti-LaSal National Forest" or "A one-mile section of the East Fork Sevier River, five miles downstream of Otter Creek Reservoir."
