Our Volunteers at Roxborough State Park enjoy its unique beauty as they share it with others. Volunteers receive a comprehensive 4-week training course to prepare them for leading school and scout groups that visit the park and assisting the public. Some of our Volunteers also do outreach education where they travel to the schools. If you are interested in learning more about our volunteer program contact Angel Tobin at 303 973-3959 X15 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Volunteer Naturalist program at Roxborough State Park has been in existence for over 35 years. This skilled group is involved in just about every aspect of the park and is essential in accomplishing the mission of Roxborough and Colorado Parks & Wildlife.
Meet our Volunteer Naturalists
Our naturalists offer a wealth of knowledge, a contagious enthusiasm and true passion for our park. Join them on guided hikes or stop and talk with them while they are hiking the trails, and get your questions answered. When they aren’t helping the visitors, they are working hard on monitoring and improving the park itself.
The Park needs constant upkeep, which is why we have volunteers come out during the summer and work on trail improvement, corridor clearing, and invasive weed removal. Once a week throughout the summer both of these activities are up for grabs to participants from our group of Volunteer Naturalists as well as anyone else willing to help out in the public. Call 303 973-3959 for more information.
