The AmeriCorps Riparian Monitoring Team will serve with WCCC and REW to conduct rapid monitoring assessments along sites in the Grand Junction area to inform the ecological condition of vegetation in riparian areas that have received restoration activities, most commonly invasive species removal such as tamarisk and Russian olive. The primary responsibility of this two-person crew is to gather monitoring data on riparian sites along the Colorado and Gunnison Rivers and occasionally assist other conservation corps crews or land managers with maintenance work such as the treatment of invasive species and revegetation.
