Groups can range from expert organizations who bring tools and technical expertise to help complete work to scouting groups looking for a service project to local businesses that would simply like to spend an afternoon caring for their local public lands.
Requirements: To find the right project for your group, we'll need to know the number of people and how many hours your group wants to volunteer. Knowing what your group is capable of and making sure they're prepared for the project will help to make for an enjoyable experience.
Time commitment: Projects range from several hours of work for a one day event to a year-long project. Per day, volunteers can expect to work 4 to 8 hours.
Best time of year: Volunteers are needed year-round. Park projects are the busiest during the summer (May - October).
Good for one-time volunteering? Yes. Groups often take on projects designed to be completed in a single day.

"Every year Convergint Technologies closes its doors for one day to give back to its community. In June 2018, 80 employees from Convergint came to Chatfield state park to help restore social trails, and repair a gazebo with materials provided by grants from the Parks Foundation. Despite the soaring temperatures and minimal shade, the group kept up the hard work and moved 15 tons of gravel, established boundaries for 600 feet of trail, and completely replaced the decking of the gazebo. Thanks for the great work Convergint."
- Jason, Park Resource Technician at Chatfield State Park
