Custom Projects and Partnerships

Volunteer projects are fun, easy and make a difference
A volunteer project is a great way for members of your organization to have fun together outside, while giving back to the community. 

Partner with us

  • It’s rewarding – We provide satisfying team-building projects that positively impact the community and the environment.
  • It’s fun – Projects can be educational and offer opportunities for participant bonding and morale enhancement. Get outside and enjoy the scenic views of one of our Town properties in a whole new way.
  • It’s easy – All tools, materials, supervision and guidance are provided. Or, if you want to get out on your own, you can check-out some trash grabbers or vests and do your own thing!
Great opportunities for:

  • School partnerships – guided hikes  trash clean-ups, wildlife presentations, the Colorado Bluebird Project, trail work and more
  • Cub Scout / Girl Scout – merit badge community service and educational presentations (examples include our Earth Day willow harvest and planting event, trash clean-ups, flower planting, and more)
  • Church youth groups – these can be trail work outings, open space reclamation, or  trash clean-ups, depending on the Town’s needs at the time
How to get started

  • Fill out a group applicationEmail or call the POST volunteer coordinator.
  • Find a date and time that works for everyone’s schedule and confirm that date with the POST volunteer coordinator.
  • Custom group projects usually consist of eight to 40 people.
  • Projects are usually scheduled within a 3-4 hour timeframe, either before or after lunch.
  • Waivers will need to be completed by all participants and a roster filled out by the group leader on the day of the project outing.
Possible volunteer projects

  • Trail maintenance – join one of our trail maintenance groups. The groups have scheduled work outing days. Or, conduct a trail maintenance activity on a Town properties in need. Contact the POST volunteer coordinator for more information.
  • Noxious weed collection – Knapweed can be eradicated from many of our trails when the plants are cut and bagged. Plus, this gives trail users a better experience when these weeds are removed from the trail edge where they can cut and scratch people’s legs.
  • Park or streetscape landscaping – mulch replacement or hardscape improvements as needed.
  • Fencing painting or removal
