Wildlands Restoration Volunteers

About WRV

Wildlands Restoration Volunteers is a non-profit organization that provides an opportunity for people to come together, learn about their natural environment, and take direct action to restore and care for the land. We'd love to have your help!

However, our open spaces, forests, streams, and high country are experiencing numerous impacts due to their close proximity to a fast growing urban population. Development, increasing recreational use and other human activities, have taken their toll on vulnerable ecosystems and wildlife habitat. At the same time, land management budgets are falling.

Environmental Stewardship as Gardening Writ Large
Date: March 9th from 8:30 am to 9:30 am
Location: WRV – Boulder Office
Rebecca Trafton, executive producer and host of the PBS series GardenStory (and WRV volunteer) will explore how environmental stewardship can be seen as gardening, an activity that not only heals our natural world but also can inspire and educate us. GardenStory is a series that explores how gardens can change our lives. In her presentation Rebecca will highlight this concept through an episode that focuses on the stewardship of a 34-acre preserve in the heart of a red spruce forest.
