APPLE CORE PROJECT

David Henry Thoreau once wrote: It is remarkable how the history of the apple tree is connected with that of man. In 2015 RHS helped kick off a  project with a newly formed group. The Apple Core Project is dedicated to preserving our local heritage fruit by mapping trees and orchards, assisting with tree maintenance, developing economic viability, and educating the public about our fruit as a historical treasure. RHS continues to partner with this very important project.

DOLORES RIVER RESTORATION PROJECT

RHS participates in an ongoing collaboration with the Tamarisk Coalition. The Rimrockers provide the historical backdrop to presentations and projects. Recently, we partnered in an Earth Day event by sponsoring a community picnic, cleanup, and raising birdhouses for river insectivores at the Uravan Ball Park/ campground.
