Restoration Getaway: Dolores River Volunteer Event
October 19, 2019 - October 20, 2019
Wildlands Restoration Volunteers and the Dolores River Restoration Partnership
Spend a few days camped out under the cottonwoods along the spectacular Dolores River with us, while you’re there, maybe kill some Tamarisk. That’s what we’ll be doing. This will be our sixth year working down in this part of the state to eradicate the invasive water hogging, earth salting Tamarisk tree. Volunteers will cut small trees or regrowth of previously cut larger trees and may also cage some Cottonwoods to protect them from marauding beavers.
This is a really fun project. It is known far and wide for the fabulous food, the awe-inspiring scenery and the colorful local history!
