Wildlands Restoration Volunteers

Volunteer

Come help restore beautiful sites all across Colorado with Wildlands Restoration Volunteers! We have opportunities for all ages, abilities and interests. No experience necessary, and we welcome families and groups. Experienced and friendly volunteer leaders work alongside you to learn new skills in a safe environment, have a great time outdoors and make new friends.

Registration now open for summer and fall projects! Highlights include:
 
2020 saw Colorado’s largest wildfires. In 2021, over 700 volunteers came out for the recovery effort, and we aim to match that in 2022. The need is great – join us to stabilize hillsides, plant trees, and repair burned trails. We even have family projects including a family campout at Cal-Wood!
 
Join us to rehabilitate closed roads in Park County and improve sage-grouse habitat out west. See long-term restoration in action at Summit Lake, Laramie foothills, and Rocky Mountain NP. Around Boulder County, we have beaver & prairie dog projects, Farms for Pollinators, and St. Vrain SP.
 
Make plans for a weekend camping trip repairing trails in the Indian Peaks, Red Feather Lakes, Cameron Peak burn area, or Rawah Wilderness. Help build a boardwalk on the Peaks Trail outside Frisco, or spend a day at Newton Park near Evergreen. You can also learn to use a crosscut saw clearing wilderness trails.
 
We’ll be cleaning up the St. Vrain through Longmont, planting trees to complete flood restoration in Lyons, harvesting willows to help with recovery from the Cameron Peak Fire, and around Greeley we’ll be watering plants and planting on the S. Platte.
 
Protect our native plant biodiversity by joining our spring weed purge or our fall Russian olive and tamarisk removal projects! Our seed collections get underway in June.
 
 
Help prep food for overnight projects at Cooks in the Kitchen in our Longmont headquarters, or check out one of our trainings!
