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!

Colorado is blessed with tremendous natural beauty. 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.

Dam Removal: Greenback Cutthroat Habitat

You did it!  You helped WRV raise the funds to restore the North Fork of the Big Thompson River and remove a diversion dam!  The dam removal will be an unexpected, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity related to the Colorado Floods of 2013. The result of your help will be a huge benefit to habitat, some of which still remains damaged since the 1976 flood! It will re-connect fish in the headwaters in Rocky Mountain National Park miles downstream to the main stem of the Big Thompson for the first time since the dam was built in the 1900s! As a match, Colorado Parks & Wildlife will reintroduce 15,000 Endangered greenback cutthroat trout fingerlings (Colorado’s state fish)! Thanks so much to everyone who donated and groups and foundations that funded this complex and exciting effort beginning now!
