Colorado Public Lands Day

In 2016, a bill was signed to make the third Saturday in May Colorado Public Lands Day! Colorado is the first state to establish such a holiday and we're celebrating the only way we know how: with three Colorado Public Lands Day projects!

Register now to show your love for the Colorado outdoors on the very first Colorado Public Lands Day, Saturday, May 20, 2017.

Dedisse Park Trail Construction (Evergreen)
Volunteers will reroute the existing Dedisse Trail, creating a sustainable route that will provide a more enjoyable and safer connection to Alderfer-Three Sisters. Work will involve basic new trail construction, along with some restoration and possible closure work. This project is perfect for volunteers of all shapes, sizes and skill levels! Register now.

Young Stewards Program at High Plains Environmental Center (Loveland)
This project is designed just for families with children ages 6-12! Participants will help with some native grass planting, learn about what it means to be a good steward, and go on a fun nature hike! This project will be a fantastic way to introduce your child to volunteering while enjoying fun outdoor activities and family bonding experiences. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Register now.

Eastern San Luis Valley Trail Construction (Crestone)
This two-day project offers something for everyone, no matter your level of experience. The relatively loose soil in the area makes for easy digging, but may require additional structures and rock armoring in places to ensure the sustainability of the trail. There will be duties that range from light shovel work and raking, to moving large rocks and building rock monowalls and armored drains - and you'll all learn what those are! Register now.
