Even under the best conditions, there are often challenges that arise when restoring a tamarisk-infested site. Please join us Aug 26th and 27th near Pueblo, CO to learn more about how to address these challenges and maximize your restoration success! A host of speakers from the restoration community will be on hand to discuss the latest tools and methods for addressing common challenges and teach a variety of restoration skills.
Come learn how to:
• Deal with tamarisk skeletons
• Manage secondary weeds such as Russian knapweed
• Restore for wildlife habitat
• Identify common Southeast Colorado short grass prairie and riparian plant species
• Collect and test your own soils for things like salinity and texture
• Install a groundwater monitoring well
• Plant cottonwood poles and deep pot plantings
The workshop will include speakers from Colorado State University (Dr. Scott Nissen), Colorado Department of Agriculture (John Kaltenbach), Habitat Management Inc. (Robin Bay), Natural Resources Conservation Service (Rich Rhoades, Tony Arnhold, and Patty Knupp), Rocky Mountain Bird Observatory (Chase Taylor), and Tamarisk Coalition (Julie Knudson, Rusty Lloyd).
