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.

The Great American Eclipse of 2017, a perspective from and for the WRV community.
Date: Tuesday, February 21st from 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm
Location: WRV – Boulder Office
Have you heard about the total solar eclipse coming this summer?
Are you wondering whether you should care?  Is it worth trying to get
to the path of totality?  What the heck is the "path of totality", anyway?

KD Leka is one of those Boulder professional solar astronomers who also
happens to wear various WRV volunteer hats.   She will present a talk on
what/when/where this Solar Eclipse thing is, and what an eclipse watcher
would expect to see from various locations -- especially eclipse watchers
who are interested in and tuned in to the natural world around them
(that is, WRV folks!)

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.
