Riparian Habitat

Working Group

About Me

The goal of the Riparian Habitat working group is to increase the spatial extent of native plant diversity and cover by increasing the area controlled for non-native vegetation. The goal hypothesizes that the removal of non-native vegetation will help restore natural floodplain processes and channel morphology. Strategies will support a demonstration project to gain community support, assist in the implementation of the U.S. Bureau of Land Management/National Park Service Riparian Restoration Plan for the Lower Virgin River, and maintain and improve habitat for Species of Greatest Conservation Need through prioritization of sites and advocating for best restoration practices.
