EARTH DAY!!! 9am-4pm approx

Join us for another Spurge Purge! The plan is a coordinated assault on Myrtle Spurge in the foothills of Boulder, CO.

Myrtle Spurge is an A-listed, aggressive and toxic invasive plant in Colorado. Our task is to prevent further spread and eradicate it at the source wherever found! WRV has established a dynamic regional partnership which will tackle this weed at multiple sites across the front range. That's where you come in! Join us on one or more of these dates to dig up this weed before it takes over our beloved state.

Become a Weed Warrior, join the movement!

Since 2013, WRV volunteers have been breathing life back into our flood damage watersheds. This year, WRV is preparing our largest slate ever of river restoration projects.

Please join us as we begin the flood restoration process at a site on Left Hand Creek, just north of Boulder. Your efforts will help protect our water supply and restore wildlife habitat by revegetating scoured stream banks. Activities will include native seeding, diverse plantings of native trees and shrubs, soil enhancing amendments and mulch, and erosion control fabric. Our revegetation work comes after large scale equipment work has reconstructed the channel and streambanks. This project is an opportunity to learn about river restoration at its best.

WRV is pleased to collaborate on this project with LeftHand Watershed Oversight Group, Iron Woman Construction and Flywater.
