2 days ago  Planting early in the growing season will help to protect the new wetland plants from periods of extreme heat and drought, and allow for a full season of growth. For small wetland sites (less than 1 acre), mid-spring to early summer is the ideal time for completing construction and planting. Marsh communities may occur within or adjacent to riparian zones, but extends west as far as the Rio Grande in New Mexico and into the Wyoming Basins. In Colorado, this system occurs on tributaries to the South Platte, Arkansas, Cimarron, and Republican rivers. vegetation responds by shifting from wetland/riparian species to upland. Ehrenfeld, J.
