The cuttings were transported to preselected locations, with no vegetation, within the Cochiti Lake area. “The objective of the workshop is to introduce USACE, interested individuals, tribes, and agency partners to a number of deep-planting techniques to enhance, expand, and restore riparian areas,” Fischer said.
