Unique to the entire 110 miles of the Russian River, Riverkeeper Stewardship Park is the place to see and participate in riverbank restoration and upkeep.
Construction of the onsite environmental educational facility and hard surfaced wheelchair-accessible trails is underway. The efforts of volunteers are enormously valuable to us and we continue to welcome their participation. For safety reasons the Park is closed to the general public — open to volunteers on Wed. 9:30-11:30 am.
We offer training so no experience is necessary. Help construct trails, work with native plants, control erosion, eliminate noxious weeds plus many other activities. Adults and children are welcome to participate. Students can receive volunteer credit.
The Park is located on the north bank of the Russian River directly upstream of the Guerneville pedestrian bridge. Access the entrance from the driveway in front of Sonoma Nesting Co. (16132 Main Street, just east of Armstrong Woods Road. At the bottom of the driveway look for the blue and white sign that says, “Russian Riverkeeper Stewardship Park.”
Please bring drinking water and wear sturdy footwear. Light refreshments are provided. For more information contact Victoria Wikle at 865-2474 or VictoriaWikle@usa.net.
