Spring Is Here, It’s Time to Get Outside!

March 2019 Western Water Newsletter

Happy spring! It’s time to get outside and lend a hand to rivers. Native streamside and wetland vegetation are critical to western birds and provide ecosystem services like clean drinking water to people. We have many opportunities coming up for you to help these important habitats!

Since 2016, Audubon Rockies and Wildland Restoration Volunteers have teamed up to restore streamside and wetland habitats in strategic locations across Colorado. But we can’t do this work without you! Project days include hands-on learning, community science, friendships, and “environmental therapy.”

Registration is now open for these projects! Visit the links below to find out more information and sign up. Early registration helps us to forecast volunteer meals and needed labor. If you can’t donate your time, please consider a donation to Audubon Rockies to support these vital projects.
