Registration is closed

Friday June 10, 2016, Bedrock, CO

Approximately 9 am-4 pm, with additional details to be sent to registrants closer to event date.

Please join us for a day along the Dolores River learning to identify local native and invasive plants in the riparian corridor and learning more about the local history of the area! 

The cost for this workshop is $10 just to cover the printing cost of the plant identification booklet for each person.

The riparian corridor of the West and Southwest consists not only of the green strip directly adjacent to the river where classic riparian species reside, but often includes an ‘upper bench’ component consisting of plant species adapted to drier conditions. We will be conducting a guided plant identification tour of the most common native and invasive plants occurring within the riparian corridor (occurring both within the 'green strip' as well as the ‘upper bench’). While we learn how to identify these different plant species, we will also be learning more about the restoration efforts conducted by the Dolores River Restoration Partnership to date within the riparian corridor, as well as learning more about the local history of the area along the way!

Each attendee will receive a Dolores River Plant Identification manual for use in our plant walk that you can take with you at the end of the day.

This workshop will be guided by Amanda Clements of the Uncompahgre Bureau of Land Management Field Office, as well as by other members of the Dolores River Restoration Partnership and members of the local Rimrocker Historical Society.
