Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
The plant community along the shoreline of Lake Powell in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is resilient and dynamic. It is surviving the fluctuations in water level that characterize such reservoirs, and native plants are becoming established. Although the diversity of animals associated with the exotic dominant, Tamarix ramosissima, is lower than that of native riparian species, a surprising number of species are associated with tamarisk in this harsh country.
