South Side Conservation District, Garfield County Vegetation and local landowners have been removing tamarisk along Mamm Creek this last year. On Sept. 13 and 14, we held a volunteer tree planting event to plant 130 cottonwoods along Mamm Creek. South Side Conservation District appreciates all the volunteers who gave up their time to help local landowners improve the plant diversity and water quality after the removal of tamarisk and Russian olive. The remainder of the tamarisk is scheduled to be treated this fall, and an additional 500 trees and shrubs are to be planted next year.We couldn’t have the success with this project without our partners and volunteers: Steve Anthony, Garfield County; Conservation Seeding & Reclamation; Tom Glass & Shawn Wissel; Colorado State Conservation Board, Natalie Macsalka; Natural Resources Conservation Service, Stephen Jaouen, Derrick Wyle, Scot Knutson; Middle Colorado River Watershed Partnership, Chris Treese, Laurie Rink, Donna Gray & Morgan Hill; Palisade Insectary, Aaron Tutledge; Tamarisk Coalition, Bill Cooper; Garfield County 4-H, Kim Schriver, Hanica LaGigla, Garret Jolley, Colton Sheridan, Kevin Grivy; South Side Conservation District, Brett Jolley, Rick Brooks, Dennis Davidson and local landowners. Thank you very much.Sharie Prow, District ManagerSouth Side Conservation DistrictGlenwood Springs

Huge kudos to Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park owners Steve and Jeanne Beckley and their employees for hosting the fourth annual Music on the Mountain. Locals and tourists were welcome to enjoy a ride up the tram and free music from May to September and all they had to do was contribute food items for our local food bank, LIFT-UP. What a win-win! The 2012 concert series came to a close Sept. 22 with an energetic crowd, dancing to the music of the Missing Link Band. Thank you to the Beckleys, their employees, the sponsors, the bands and all who attended. You all gave back to the community, not only with food for LIFT-UP but with your spirit of fun. Looking forward to next year.Michele DiamondGlenwood Springs
