Education and outreach are two major components of the Tamarisk Coalition's mission.
We facilitate community understanding of tamarisk and Russian olive issues using a variety of mediums ranging from field trips to large scale conferences and symposia, these methods include -
Over the years we have produced and distributed a number of resources including -
Our quarterly newsletter provides information on upcoming events, Tamarisk Coalition projects, restoration projects, and resources.
Our staff, often in partnership with other organizations, provides educational presentations to audiences of all types. We also frequently participate in community events that provide opportunities for outreach and education. If you have an education opportunity, please contact us.
Our volunteers are educated in virtually every aspect of the tamarisk issue. They receive onsite training in tamarisk removal, revegetation, and monitoring. Additionally, project leaders spend a lot of time answering question and discussing the impacts of tamarisk, the importance of riparian restoration, and the processes involved. This (below) educational poster has been placed at the trail head of one of our first projects.
Believe it or not you are educating yourself right now! We try to keep the most up-to-date information and resources available on our web site. If you see that a link is broken, please let us know. Thank you!
