F.O.R.B. (Fostering Our Riparian Biodiversity) is River Revitalization Foundation's drop-in volunteer opportunity! Participate in land restoration activities with RRF Land Manager and Field Supervisor. 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. Most importantly, a willingness to smile, have fun, and get dirty!

In addition to this opportunity, we are also offering a new volunteer incentive- free use of kayaks and canoes! RRF volunteers who log in 10 hours (or more) qualify, offer is limited to the number of boats and staff members available. Come to F.O.R.B for more information!
Please contact the Field Supervisor, Ellie Kirkwood, if you have any questions.
