Quenching their thirst

As reported by The Denver Post, a state representative in Colorado has introduced a bill that will grant $1 million to Mesa State College to support their efforts to eradicate invasive tamarisk trees (Tamarix spp.) from the state.

A grassroots organization, the Tamarisk Coalition, will assist with the project, which will involve local, state and federal agencies as well.
