Volunteerism is a staple of restoration projects. Always operating on a tight budget, the efficient work of volunteers is often the only way a restoration site transforms from a tamarisk thicket to a diverse riparian forest of native shrubs, trees, forbs, and grasses. RiversEdge West also views volunteer events as invaluable educational opportunities to answer questions and share knowledge with curious participants.
