"To perpetuate the wildlife resources of the state, to provide a quality state parks system, and to provide enjoyable and sustainable outdoor recreation opportunities that educate and inspire current and future generations to serve as active stewards of Colorado's natural resources."
In 2012, volunteers helped achieve this mission by contributing over 337,235 hours of service to our agency. Volunteers play an essential role in achieving a high quality of outdoor recreation experiences, resource stewardship, wildlife projects, and habitat protection. We need your help as a volunteer to increase the public's understanding of conservation and natural resources.
If you like to spend time in the great outdoors and you care about our natural resources, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is for you! Volunteers differ in their degrees of commitment and types of service. They differ in their donation of time, materials, expertise and even monies. Depending upon your interests and Colorado Parks and Wildlife's needs, we will try and match you to the location and volunteer opportunity of your choice.
Learn more about the hands-on learning and community involvement opportunities and how you can get involved. At this time, two volunteer programs are available: State Parks and Wildlife. If you are interested, you can even apply to volunteer for both programs!
Thank you for your interest in supporting the stewardship of Colorado’s natural resources.
