Service in May


We will be working outside and enjoying the (hopefully) beautiful Spring weather in Colorado while making a difference in Boulder County's open space. This year projects will include working on agricultural land, but might include seed collection, trail work, 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.

    • Weather - Weather in May is usually nice, but can be unpredictable.  Although we will be relatively close to the trailhead it is important that you bring warm and waterproof clothing, we will try to complete the work in slightly inclement weather (cold, light rain, wind).  Dressing in removable layers of non-cotton clothing will help you stay dry and comfortable.  I would suggest checking the forecast before the project at and search Broomfield, CO.  Even if the forecast predicts bad weather, please plan on attending.  If we do decide to postpone or cancel this project, I will let you know as soon as possible.
    • What You Bring: Work clothes, Drinking water/bottle (1-2 liters), Sturdy shoes/boots, Sunscreen, Work gloves (if you have them), Layers of clothes, Rain gear, Binoculars or camera (optional)
    • We will provide: Water, Snacks, Work Gloves, First Aid Kit, Tools
    • Commitment - Your participation is greatly appreciated; it is also the most important component of a volunteer project.  Please plan on attending.  If something comes up and you cannot make this event, please let me know as soon as possible.
