Volunteers needed for tamarisk removal in Glenwood Springs

Staff report

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers are seeking help to eradicate tamarisk from 8:30 to 5 p.m. Saturday.

Work will be done from the banks of the lower Roaring Fork River to the Colorado River in west Glenwood Springs. Tamarisk is an invasive species that can choke out the native vegetation that’s important to a healthy riparian habitat and wildlife.

Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers and project partners Garfield County, Glenwood Springs and the Roaring Fork Conservancy will provide the tools and leadership. Volunteers will be rewarded with dinner immediately after work concludes.

All volunteers must register for the project in advance to receive the details and provide a count of how many people will be attending.
