Restore Trails and Native Vegetation at Canyonlands NP

This project will employ youth conservation crews to work alongside NPS staff to improve trails, control exotic plant populations and restore degraded grasslands in Canyonlands and Arches national parks.


Project Objectives â¿¿ Trail work will involve repairing water bars,

check steps, stone retaining walls, and trail tread surface, as well as installation of fencing and shade structures.

Project will control exotic vegetation through hand-pulling and treating target species with herbicide, and assisting NPS sawyers with tamarisk removal.

Grassland restoration will involve installing and seeding small erosion control devices called ⿿ConMods⿝ that will collect soil, sand, litter and debris which will facilitate germination and establishment of native species.

PARTICIPATION OF CTN INVESTIGATORS Most research projects proposed under this FOA, whether ancillary or platform studies, will require participation, collaboration, cooperation, or other support by CTN investigators or community treatment program staff or patients.

Although the CTN has created a research infrastructure of CTPs and RRTCs that will support studies such as those encouraged here, some prospective studies involving sites affiliated with the CTN may not be feasible given the mission, goals, and timetables of the CTN cooperative agreement program or of specific ongoing trials.

Thus, it is incumbent on the Principal Investigator of proposed research to contact NIDA CCTN staff and/or CTN grantee personnel (i.e., RRTC PIs and CTP directors) early in the application development process, to submit documentation of support from CTN entities that would be affected, and to obtain written approval for access to any required data that has not yet reached the public domain.
