Volunteer Positions:

  • 9/4-7 Gunnison – Habitat Restoration: Gunnison sage-grouse. This will be our fifth year of working in the Upper Gunnison Basin to restore native wet meadows – critical habitat for Gunnison Sage Grouse. This is a hugely popular project, in an awesome location and building really amazing structures. We will be working with the US Forest Service and many local partners to restore riparian and wet meadow habitats in sagebrush shrublands in the Upper Gunnison Basin. We will use innovative, yet simple, restoration methods-small rock structures-to raise the water table to support plants and insects needed by wildlife. We will apply the approach of restoration expert Bill Zeedyk, author of Let the Water do the Work: Induced Meandering, An Evolving Method for Restoring Incised Channels (2012).
