The Colorado Natural Areas Program depends on skilled volunteers.
Do you have experience with botany, wildlife biology, geology or paleontology? Do you enjoy orienteering or back country travel? Or do you love the outdoors and would like to develop your skills as a naturalist? If so, you may be able to help with on the ground conservation at one of our natural areas.
About the Volunteer Steward Program
Our volunteers are a crucial asset to our program. We are looking for Volunteer Stewards to commit to an annual monitoring visit to a natural area.
We ask that all stewards be skilled in:
- backcountry hiking
- map reading
- knowledge of Colorado natural history
