We believe everyone has a place in caring for Colorado.
You don't have to pick up a shovel to be a good steward. If you can't make it to one of our 50+ volunteer projects hosted each year from April - October, there are still plenty of ways to have a positive impact on the outdoor places you love! Whether you hit the trails every weekend or prefer the view from your porch, here are a few resources to help you find the small ways you can make a difference:
- Familiarize yourself with Leave No Trace principles. From your backyard to the backcountry, these 7 principles help you enjoy nature while preserving it for generations to come.
- Peruse VOC's Blog, where we share educational stories about the need for stewardship and various DIY Stewardship tips like how to plan a Colorado-friendly fall hike or drive.
- Download our YourCO mobile app. With 50+ DIY Stewardship tasks that you can complete on your own time - like picking up trash or turning down the thermostat - our mobile app makes it easier than ever to care for Colorado. Plus, you'll earn cool digital badges along the way! Learn more in the video below, check out the badges, and download the app on iPhone or Android.
