RiversEdge West Updated:04/2019

RiversEdge West (formerly Tamarisk Coalition) was founded in 1999. RiversEdge West focuses on riparian forest and floodplain health in the American West to address impacts from invasive riparian (riverside) plants such as Russian olive and tamarisk, challenges associated with climate change and habitat fragmentation, and stressors that may result in diminished biodiversity and ecosystem services.

RiversEdge West provides credible information on the best practices and technical aspects of restoration (e.g., techniques for managing invasive riparian plants and re-establishing natives). RiversEdge West also specializes in fostering grassroots leadership by bringing diverse stakeholders together across boundaries to coordinate the restoration of riparian lands. This is accomplished by helping practitioners assemble resources (e.g., gathering information, securing funding, raising public awareness) to better understand and navigate restoration challenges and succeed in the sustained recovery of affected river systems.
