River Partners President Julie Rentner, Associate Director of Restoration Science Michael Rogner, and Senior Restoration Science Ecologist Mike Davis discuss the organization’s history and ethos, explore the science behind our restoration work, and spotlight one of our most successful projects, Dos Rios Ranch Preserve.
