What Makes a Good Volunteer Project?
The Colorado State Forest Service involves volunteers in many of our operational efforts, including wildfire and fuels mitigation, education and public awareness, urban forestry, tree plantings and watershed protection.
A Good Volunteer Project:
- Fits the CSFS Mission
- Benefits the community at large or multiple cooperators
- Includes opportunities for experiential learning
Each volunteer project provides opportunities for experiential learning and exposure to forest management and stewardship.
We plan ahead at least a month in advance and need even more time for large projects. Although we are based in Fort Collins, we will take on projects across the state.
We have access to a variety of tools, including chainsaws, a chipper and the necessary safety equipment, and volunteers who are trained to safely operate this equipment.
