Event Details

Title: Wet Meadows Restoration with WRV

Short Description: Come restore wet meadows and riparian areas in collaboration with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers near Craig. Camping is optional!

Difficulty: Hard (lifting stones, using tools, working alongside steep embankments)

Project Details: Join us with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers to help restore wet meadows and riparian areas! These ecosystems are vital for carbon storage and wildlife habitat, including Greater-Sage grouse, migratory birds, elk, and mule deer. A number of wet meadows and riparian areas, already compromised by erosion and lower water tables, are likely to be further altered from drought and high intensity rainstorms associated with a changing climate. To address these challenges, we will use innovative, yet simple, restoration methods called Zeedyk structures to raise the water table and re-establish wetland meadows and riparian areas in sagebrush habitat.

Volunteers may also camp before and after the project on Wednesday and Sunday evenings.

This project is being run by Wildlands Restoration Volunteers. Please follow the link to their website to sign-up for the event.
