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 application. Email 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
