  • Groups up to 50 will be considered, although projects of this size will depend on staff availability and park needs.

  • Please allow at least 4 weeks to schedule your request.
  • We cannot guarantee a specific project type as projects are determined by staff priorities and management goals.

Flower Bed Champ


Our Flowerbed Champs help maintain a flower bed they adopt in our parks. Volunteers will weed, mulch, deadhead, and occasional plant in their adopted bed. They work closely with our horticulture staff who are available to help guide the work in the bed!

Volunteers for Natural Lands Outreach


Natural Lands Outreach Volunteers welcome and educate users along the North Shore of the Boulder Reservoir and Coot Lake about: 1) Aquatic Nuisance Species, 2) area-specific rules (i.e., no swimming, no launching watercraft), and 3) wildlife closures to protect nesting bird species of concern. There will also be a rotating focus topic ranging from native plants,  land stewardship, pollinators, and more. This focus topic will change each month. While staffing the table and patrolling, volunteers will collect data on visitor patterns, volume, and behavior. When volunteers observe rule violations, they will contact staff that can provide further education when appropriate. Please note, volunteers will not provide any type of enforcement, as this position will focus on monitoring and education only. 

To apply, fill out the "Natural Lands Outreach Volunteer Application" to the right!
