St. Vrain Tamarisk Removal

Enjoy panoramic views of the Front Range and heal a local area devastated by the 2013 flood!

The flood from Sept 2013 on the St Vrain Creek breached several lakes and carved a new channel just east of the Boulder/Weld County line during the flood. Continuing our work from 2016, WRV is helping Longmont restore this area that has been scoured of vegetation and overrun with invasive Tamarisk. Tamarisk (aka Salt Cedar) has devastated watersheds throughout the west, costing billions of dollars in lost water, lost habitat and lost electricity. It has invaded many Colorado Front Range watersheds, including the St. Vrain Creek and Boulder Creek watersheds. With your help, we’ll eliminate all invasive Tamarisk and restore the area!
