Wet meadows tour: Yampa River Collaborative is visiting Gunnison to learn about wet meadows restoration work being led by Upper Gunnison River Water Conservancy District. The goal of these site visits is 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 was provided on assessing two indicators of river health (floodplain connectivity and aquatic biota), including wet meadows asssessment training and macroinvertebrate sampling. Participants participated in implementation site visits to learn about watershed system optimization.
