On a Mission
RiversEdge West’s mission is to restore riverside (riparian) ecosystems through education, collaboration, and technical assistance.
Founded in 1999, RiversEdge West (formerly Tamarisk Coalition) focuses on riparian forest and floodplain health in the Western U.S. RiversEdge West addresses the challenges associated with impacts from invasive riparian plants such as Russian olive and tamarisk, climate change and habitat fragmentation, and other stressors that may result in diminished biodiversity and ecosystem services.
RiversEdge West plays an integral role in improving fish and wildlife habitat and enhancing the agricultural, economic, cultural, and recreational opportunities for the communities where we work.
