Producers along the Arkansas River from Canon City to the state line past Holly, have undertaken a project to rid their land from tamarisk or salt cedar. They can't count on Mother Nature for help because tamarisk is not native to this country and that means it has no natural enemies.
The picture at left depicts quagga mussels removed from the Mississippi River lock and dam number 7 (2001). This invasive species has inundated waterways east of the 100th meridian.

Funds are dwindling for a state program that has funneled millions of dollars into the Arkansas River basin for water activities, and there will be more competition for future requests.
Scientists say a new study shows invasive quagga mussels can survive and possibly reproduce in Lake Tahoe.
The state is releasing bugs in the valley to knock back tamarisk, leafy spurge and bindweed as the summer growing season moves ahead.
A committee that took on the job of bringing recreation to Lake Nighthorse when the case seemed hopeless, picked up some moral support Thursday, but, more importantly, some financial backing.
