Gunnison SMP/IWMP Field Trip & Wet Meadows Tour

Peer Workshops

8/2/2023 – 8/4/2023

Wet meadows tour: Yampa River Collaborative visited Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District  to learn about their wet meadows restoration work. The goal of the visit was to generate ideas for how to implement similar projects in the Yampa River Basin.

Gunnison SMP/IWMP Field Trip: Participants explored the Gunnison Integrated Water Management Plan and tested out tools and approaches used in the planning process. Training on wet meadows assessments and macroinvertebrate sampling focused on two indicators of river health (floodplain connectivity and aquatic biota). Participants participated in implementation site visits to learn about watershed system optimization.
