About

Take a volunteer vacation with WRV! Join us for this camp-out trip on our fourth year working to restore a native ecosystem inside the absolutely stunning Dolores River Canyon Wilderness Study Area. Volunteers will remove invasive Tamarisk trees and seed and plant native vegetation in "resource islands" throughout the area. This is a rare opportunity to camp with your WRV community and work in this truly scenic and historic area - once the stomping grounds of the infamous rimrockers and notable characters such as Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid! We'll be working with the Tamarisk Coalition and the Dolores River Restoration Partnership on this one, and we can't wait!
