Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Rocky Mountain National Park!
Rocky Mountain National Park is home to one of the most dynamic and hard-working volunteer programs in the National Park Service. Each year, Rocky enlists volunteer groups to help paid staff on various projects. The park completes projects AND groups learn about the park through service—it's a win-win! In 2017, over 1,700 volunteers took part in a group volunteer opportunity. Our projects range from trail work, to vegetation projects, fire fuel reduction work and litter clean ups. How will you get involved in your park this summer?
The following describes the various projects that we invite volunteer groups to participate in. Please have a look at the project descriptions, the group size and minimum age required, and the day and time options to see which project(s) work best for your group. If your group is slightly larger or you have other needs you would like to discuss, please contact the RMNP Volunteer Program Office: 970-586-1330 or e-mail us.
Exotics and re-vegetation volunteers support resource management and research personnel in any or all of the following areas: exotic plant removal, vegetation and restoration, and seed collection.
For information on how to get involved in a vegetation group project for 2019, contact:Michelle_Gibbons@nps.gov.
