RestoreCorps

Volunteer at a RestoreCorps Event this Summer!11703369_10153565938627147_1276179280756753226_n

Restoration sites require stewardship to flourish, and you can be a part of the effort! Riverkeeper is excited to welcome volunteers to our RiverBend Phase I site at 1140 South Park Avenue. The riparian buffer and habitat restoration construction at RiverBend Phase I has been completed, and Riverkeeper is currently managing the invasive species and nuisance weeds on the site.

We welcome your help! Join RestoreCorps, and provide vital stewardship to the establishment of the habitat at RiverBend Phase I by uprooting invasive species and spreading soil and mulch around the planted trees and shrubs. By removing weeds and spreading mulch, volunteers have the opportunity to help new plants and trees survive and thrive along our shorelines.

This is your opportunity to contribute your time and skills towards a more diverse ecosystem and a healthy natural environment along the banks of the Buffalo River. RestoreCorps provides volunteer power for habitat restoration, and is also a fun opportunity to meet like-minded people and while making a lasting contribution to one of our region’s greatest natural resources: our water.  Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or new to these activities, we’d love to have you join us!

Questions?  Contact Joshua Konovitz, Field Project Coordinator, at jkonovitz@bnriverkeeper.org or (716) 852-7483 ext 29.

Stay tuned for future updates and additional volunteering opportunities, too. Riverkeeper is currently involved in the construction of numerous habitat restoration projects in our watershed, and future events will include additional sites and varied projects beyond weeding and mulching.
