Wildlands Restoration Volunteers
Healing the Land. Building Community.
Our story: In 1999, 20 people gathered to plant willows around Heron Pond at Pella Crossing, Colorado. From this humble beginning grew a corps of thousands of volunteers with a formal leadership training program, who donate $1 million worth of labor and expertise at over 100 restoration projects across Colorado’s Front Range each year. Learn more about our work to restore lands affected by the floods and fires, and join our volunteers at www.wlrv.org.
The Heartstring Hunters
The Heartstring Hunters are an indie/folk band based out of Boulder, Colorado weaving the likeness of Joni Mitchell with the harmonies of the Civil Wars. Featuring singer-songwriter Carolyn Nicely, producer/multi-instrumentalist Daniel Hunter, accomplished bassist Alessandro Ceserani and exquisite vocalist Rachael Sheaffer, the Heartstring Hunters will hit you with waves of incandescent harmonies while shades of their southern roots peek through. Check out their NPR Tiny Desk Contest Submission here.
Lone Hawk Farm
Our location: Lone Hawk Farm is a working farm located in a lovely, secluded part of Boulder County. There’s a good view of the Front Range and surrounding countryside from the deck of the historic barn. Starting with a barbed-wire fence and a herd of cattle in 1975, the Lone Hawk’s mission has been to develop the land into a productive, diversified farm providing the wider community with organically-grown produce and a venue for celebrating special events. A long-term goal is to sustainably produce energy as well as fresh local food. Lone Hawk’s gardening equipment, built on-site, is battery-powered and is recharged from solar panels and a wind generator, assuring a clean, quiet growing environment.

Featured Speaker: John Peterson
John Peterson has a knack for high-alpine restoration projects. Last Fall he climbed Cho-Oyu (26,906′) on the border of Nepal and Tibet, the 6th tallest mountain in the world and the summit is just 12 miles from Everest, which John successfully summitted on May 27th. John said, “Training for Cho Oyu and Everest, I found it lot more fun carrying wattles up Georgia Pass for a WRV project than doing loops on Mt. Sanitas with sand bags in my pack!” And in regards to his recent Everest trip: “We did do some nice cleanup work at the bottom of the icefall just outside of basecamp to help clean up some trash prior to our summit push.” Hear John speak about his involvement with WRV to restore the land and pursue even bigger goals.
