Volunteerism is a staple of restoration projects. Always operating on a tight budget, the efficient work of volunteers is often the only way a restoration site transforms from a tamarisk thicket to a diverse riparian forest of native shrubs, trees, forbs, and grasses. RiversEdge West also views volunteer events as invaluable educational opportunities to answer questions and share knowledge with curious participants.
 
Since RiversEdge West doesn't own any land, we work with land managers, private landowners, and other partners to coordinate and host volunteer events.
