F.O.R.B. (Fostering Our Riparian Biodiversity) is River Revitalization Foundation's volunteer opportunity! Participate in land restoration activities with RRF Stewardship Director. Meet and work alongside individuals passionate about the natural world and preserving its integrity! Activities could include, but are not limited to: removing invasive species, establishing native plants and trees, maintaining trails, seed collecting and cleaning and controlling erosion. All activities are important for improving the quality and access of the habitat surrounding Milwaukee's river basin.

Volunteers must be willing and able to participate in manual labor for at least two hours outdoors in varying weather conditions (indoor options available when it is too cold or storming). Most importantly, a willingness to smile, have fun, and get dirty!

NEW Safety Protocols:

  1. There will be a max of 5 people per volunteer day (online signup required)
  2. Masks are required
  3. All tools will be sanitized after each use
  4. Volunteers will maintain at least 6 ft distance from others while in the field
  5. Our office is currently closed to the public so there will not be access to a restroom and volunteers should remain outside of the building

The mission of the River Revitalization Foundation is to establish a parkway for public access, walkways, recreation and education, bordering the Milwaukee, Menomonee and Kinnickinnic Rivers; to use the rivers to revitalize surrounding neighborhoods; and to improve water quality. From the past to the future, we are committed to the return of this vital natural resource for all as Milwaukee's urban rivers land trust.
