Healing the Land, Building Community.

About

Building on more than a decade of profoundly successful progress, WRV continues the urgent quest to remove Mediterranean Sage from Boulder County. Volunteers will dig up plants on City of Boulder and Boulder County Open Space Lands north of Boulder and west of Longmont.

Left unchecked, this Colorado A-listed weed aggressively invades grasslands, reduces native plant populations, and degrades wildlife habitat and the overall health of prairie ecosystems. With sustained action, state wide eradication is possible, which would protect prairie ecosystems and wildlife habitat. Indirectly, this work will help protect thousands of acres of Colorado grassland habitats.
