COCHITI LAKE, N.M. - Dave Derrick, instructor, (right) and a workshop participant tie bundles of newly cut plantings in preparation for transport to a different location at Cochiti Lake during the hands-on riparian construction workshop held February 26-27. Cochiti Lake was selected for the location for the workshop because of the opportunities available to rehabilitate the shoreline with native species. This rehabilitation will provide habitat for a wide range of riparian-dependent fauna and improve water quality.
