Service Week

Overview

We will be working outside and enjoying the (hopefully) beautiful weather in Colorado while making a difference in Boulder County's open space. This year projects may include working on agricultural land, seed collection, trail work, painting, or building picnic areas.  Be prepared for hard, but rewarding work with immediate results. Participants should be prepared with a good attitude, some clothes that can get dirty and are appropriate for the weather, and a mode of transportation that could take you to different county open space sites each day.
