This year, John R. Spence (National Park Service) and Linda Whitham (The Nature Conservancy) were authors featured in an article for the book, Colorado Plateau VI. Science and Management at the Landscape Scale. Their article is titled “The Escalante River Watershed Partnership”. Pp 339-352. The chapter focuses on subjects like The Escalante River Watershed Partnership-A New Collaboration, Goals and Objectives of the Partnership, Woody Invasive Control Plan and The Future of the Escalante River Watershed Partnership. We are very happy to have such knowledgeable partners who can help to get our name out there and share the project with interested parties.
The ERWP 2015 season of Russian olive removal was also featured in The Wayne & Garfield County Insider Newspaper on Sept. 3rd. It talked about the project and training specs and the fact that the chainsaw training cut site was the New Escalante Irrigation Company property. Just one of the ways that the ERWP is giving back to the town of Escalante.
