    Updated Phoenix Workshop for Riparian Restoration and the Tamarisk Beetle

    On April 20th, in Avondale, Arizona, Tamarisk Coalition is working under a Walton Family Foundation grant to present a workshop on riparian restoration, focusing on areas impacted by the tamarisk beetle. 

    Hosted by Estrella Mountain Community College, with sponsorship from the City of Buckeye, Stillwater Sciences, and SWCA Consultants (and more coming), this one-day workshop is geared towards land managers and folks on-the-ground.

    Presentations will discuss the history, monitoring, and spread of the tamarisk beetle throughout the Colorado River Basin (including predictions for future colonization), wildfire in southwest riparian systems (with and without the beetle present), innovative restoration techniques, as well as potential impacts to endangered species and associated permit requirements, and will provide recently developed restoration and decision-making tools to participants. 

    Speakers include Dr. Gail Drus, Mary Anne McLeod, and Dr. Bruce Orr, coming from out-of-area to share their expertise in wildfire, endangered species, and restoration respectively. Dr. Kevin Hultine (Desert Botanic Gardens), to discuss tamarisk mortality and effects associated with the beetle. Levi Jamison from NAU will be there to discuss future beetle movements, Mary Wolf from NRCS to cover desert riparian-specific plantings and soils, Shawn Stone from Gila Watershed Partnership to talk about targeted SWFL habitat restoration, and COE staff to cover permitting.

    Cost for the workshop will be $25, with limited needs-based scholarships available upon request and discounts for Tamarisk Coalition members or departments/organizations sending more than four individuals. Includes materials, snacks, beverages, and lunch.

    There will be an associated day of site visits on April 21st at various spots along the Gila River in southern Maricpopa County, Avondale, and Buckeye. Lunches for this day will be generously provided by the City of Buckeye.

    So, put April 20th on your calendars, check this site for updates and registration, and contact Ben Bloodworth with any inquiries or scholarship/multiple attendee requests: bbloodworth@tamariskcoalition.org.
