Affordable Tools in Riparian Restoration

This workshop will bring together NRCS conservationists and partners in Utah interested in how to use low-cost tools (mimicking natural processes) to restore riparian areas to benefit wildlife and working lands. Participants will come away with:

River Management Workshop

Workshop for White River riparian landowners and managers to learn about local, state, and federal resources available for river and riparian restoration. The first half of the day will focus on local river property management challenges and best management practices to alleviate them. There will be a session on funding opportunities for private landowners of riparian corridors. Then, we’ll have updates on White River planning and research efforts from local stakeholders over lunch, which will be provided to registrants.

2018 Rain Barrel Building Workshop

In 2016, it became legal to collect water from your gutters to water your lawn, garden, and flowers on your own property. Since then, rain barrels have been all the rage, and Colorado residents are all getting excited about this new way to garden and save on their water bill at the same time! Water Education Colorado is partnering with Ute Water Conservancy District and the River Network to host a rain barrel workshop where participants will actually build their own rain barrel and get to take it home!
