Creek & River Restorations
The Alliance works with schools, charity groups, corporate and social responsibility coordinators, and university student organizations to restore natural vegetation along rivers and creeks. We remove invasive plant species, and plant banks of native vegetation called “seed islands”, which promote increase biodiversity of plants and insects. Volunteers learn about riverside ecology, plant life, and habitat restoration!
NOTE: Ages 16 and up are allowed to participate; we work with sharp tools!
