Our program will feature a presentation by Christine Prins: “RiversEdge West: Advancing Riparian Restoration through Education, Collaboration, and Technical Assistance.”
RiversEdge West (formerly known as the Tamarisk Coalition) is a locally based non-profit organization (https://riversedgewest.org/) that envisions a network of healthy riparian ecosystems throughout the American West. Christine will discuss how they realize this vision primarily by focusing on riparian health, increasing access to information, education and training, and participating in science and innovation. This work is achieved through the work of watershed partnerships, monitoring, private landowner and public outreach, and policy involvement projects throughout the western United States. This presentation will cover the main watershed partnerships, the projects that they are involved in, and what members of the public can do to be involved.
We hope you can join us on Thursday. Christine’s presentation will be followed by a plant (and sundries) drawing and a short club business meeting. The doors will be open at 6:00.
Visitors are welcome!
