Upslope Celebrates Earth Day with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers

In celebration of Earth Day, Upslope staffers teamed up with our friends from Zeal Optics and polar explorer Eric Larsen and team, to help make a difference!

Environmental non-profit organization, Wildlands Restoration Volunteers (WRV) has been working hard to restore the land damaged by Boulder County’s historic flood in 2013. This Earth Day, we were lucky enough to lend a few hands in their most recent project: planting willows and cottonwoods along the river in Eldorado Canyon.

We got down and dirty and had an absolute blast. Thanks to WRV who showed us the ropes, we were able to take part in planting the 900 plants accomplished that day. We celebrated by drinking a few hard-earned beers and throwing a Get Wild to Save the Wild party at our Flatiron Park tap room, where a dollar from every beer sold benefited our new friends at WRV.

We were so grateful for the opportunity to help WRV this past Earth Day and really look forward to our next restoration adventure with them. To learn more about ways to support WRV, click here!
