Description: The Tamarisk Coalition (TC), a nonprofit organization dedicated to riparian restoration in the western United States, has created a Native Plant Materials Program to address the identified need for native riparian plant species for use in revegetation efforts on the Colorado Plateau. The specific components of the Native Plant Materials Program include: 1) provide seed collection and riparian restoration training; 2) work with various partnerships and collaborators to help define needs/goals for active restoration; 3) help facilitate the development of appropriate replacement plant species for restoration; and 4) work with partners to develop a business model for the sustainable production of locally grown native plant materials. The TC has received numerous grants to assist with implementing this program. Grantors include the Central Utah Project Completion Act, Xcel Energy, Walton Family Foundation, and the Colorado Healthy Rivers Fund. Based on experiences resulting from implementing the Native Plant Materials Program and feedback received from multiple watershed organizations, native plant materials development for active restoration efforts remains an important, if not critical, need. TC continues to document its work and that of other organizations in an effort to help inform ongoing efforts.
