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.

Help Repot WRV!

WRV needs a new home

Can you help transplant WRV to a new office?  We need 1,400-2,000 ft2 of office space for 10+ people in the Boulder area and 900 square foot (or more) of office space for 4+ people in the Fort Collins area, with an attached garage or storage area for restoration tools.  If you can donate office space, donate a building, offer a discount or lend real estate skills to a search you will help save precious resources to heal the land and provide room for our community to do more work.

Thanks to all our volunteers, donors, and partners for all you have done over the past 15 years to help WRV grow!
