Now in our 35th season of stewarding Colorado’s public lands, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) is looking to the future and our many partners to help shape the next 35 years of stewardship. As we celebrate this milestone, we believe it’s important to consider what Colorado will look like over the next three decades and how different factors will impact the ways in which we care for our state’s public lands and natural resources.
Thanks to the generosity of former Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) Board Member Rick Grossman and his wife Susie, VOC is now able to offer four $5,000 scholarships each year to help make educational dreams possible for those involved in outdoor volunteer stewardship!
