How You Can Participate

  • Volunteer. Come plant willow poles with us. No prior experience is needed, just your enthusiasm and willingness to make a difference.
  • Learn. In 2023 Rio Grande Return installed approximately 150 beaver dam analogs and post-assisted log structures in Rio Cebolla along a former beaver meadow. Learn about the role of beaver mimicry in improving water quality, storing water, expanding wetlands and creating wildlife habitat.
