In 2016, Governor Hickenlooper signed a bill that made Colorado the first state in the country to establish a holiday in honor of the state's public lands. From now on, the third Saturday in May will be recognized as Colorado Public Lands Day and Coloradans are encouraged to enjoy all that our state's parks, forests and monuments have to offer.
In collaboration with other partners, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado spearheads seven projects in 2017 to celebrate The Grand Milestone and enhance the outdoor stewardship community
The Public Lands Champion badge will promote the importance of Colorado’s public lands
Last fall, VOC sent two of our OSI instructors to Florida through a National Forest Foundation Grant and Southwest Airlines. It was a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for Kim Frederick and Steve West to travel for free and conduct the Crew Leadership for Trails training with the Florida Trail Association (FTA). The FTA manages multiple volunteer chapters throughout the state to protect and maintain the Florida National Scenic Trail.
