Youth Crews remove invasive tamarisk from Moody Wash, Dixie National Forest

Leveraging grant money from Utah’s Watershed Restoration Initiative and 21st Century Conservation Service Corps grant funds, Utah Division of Wildlife Resources and the Dixie National Forest partnered with agency crews and Utah Conservation Corp youth crews (UCC) to continue  removal  of infestation of Salt cedar (Tamarisk) from Moody Wash, Pine Valley Ranger District.

The project will maintain current native riparian vegetation community and improve stream function for virgin spinedace, desert sucker, speckled dace, Arizona toad and canyon tree frog species, restoring Moody Wash’s natural balance and enhance biological diversity.
