Escalante River Watershed Partnership (ERWP)
The Escalante River, a unique ribbon of green, winds through a vast desert landscape and is a vital source of water for both natural communities and the residents of the towns of Boulder and Escalante. In 2010, Partners joined a multi-jurisdictional effort to restore the Escalante Watershed and is a key partner in the Escalante River Watershed Project.
In 2015, ERWP had their largest presence yet with 80 crew members removing about 7 miles of invasive species from the riverbank. They’re right on track to finish in 2018, too. Last year, The Nature Conservancy of Utah presented ERWP with their Conservation Partnership Award, the Utah Chapter’s highest honor.
