Seed Collection

Saturday, November 3

Location will be determined closer to the project date.
Volunteers will help Boulder County restore disturbed lands by hand-collecting a variety of species, including grasses, sedges, wildflowers, and shrubs. Local botanists will work on-site and provide identification of wildflowers and other native plants during the project. Staff continuously monitors seed development at a variety of open space areas, so the exact location of projects will be determined about four days before the project date.

Minimum age is 8 with adult supervision.

Ongoing Opportunities

Volunteer Naturalist

If you enjoy nature and sharing your knowledge with others, consider volunteering as a naturalist with Boulder County Parks & Open Space. The training prepares you to lead nature hikes, present slide programs, and provide hands-on natural history experiences to residents of all ages. Topics range from wildlife and plants to local ecology and geology. You’ll also learn about interpretive techniques and resources.
 
Application deadline is November 9, 2018, or until the class is filled. For more information, contact Larry Colbenson at lcolbenson@bouldercounty.org or 303-678-6214.

Volunteer Ranger Corps

Volunteer Ranger Corps members hike, bike, or ride a horse at Boulder County’s most scenic open spaces while providing park visitors with information about cultural and natural history, recreational opportunities, facilities, and regulations. With additional training and approval, volunteers can hike the trails with their dog to help share information with other dog owners on the trail.

Volunteers will also be trained to lead and assist staff with work projects, visitor studies, and community outreach and education.

For more information, contact Michelle Marotti at mmarotti@bouldercounty.org or 303-678-6219.
