Welcome to Verde Watershed Restoration Coalition

The Verde Watershed Restoration Coalition (commonly referred to as VWRC – pronounced “vee-work”) is a collaborative effort uniting private landowners, organizations, and agencies with a common interest in the health of the Verde River Watershed. Together, VWRC Partners are working to control one of the biggest current threats to the Verde River – invasive plants, along with a suite of other projects.

Vision: For the Verde River and its tributaries to comprise a diverse, self-sustaining, and resilient riparian ecosystem through cooperative stakeholder participation. Stakeholders support the values and the functions of riparian land in the Verde River Watershed.
