Working Across Boundaries on Restoration

ERWP Lecture- Escalante Interagency Visitor’s Center – 4/18/2015 

The Escalante River is a ribbon of green in an otherwise arid landscape – this oasis is being threatened by invasive plant and animal species. Non-native trees, such as Russian olive and tamarisk compete with native vegetation, choke water flows and reduce wildlife habitats. To address the myriad challenges invasive species have created along the river, the community-based Escalante River Watershed Partnership (ERWP) was formed in 2009 to protect and maintain a healthy river and watershed for future generations, and coordinate restoration efforts across boundaries.
