On Saturday, September 13, the statewide nonprofit Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC), in partnership with Colorado Springs Utilities and Habitat Management Inc., will be leading volunteers in critical fire restoration efforts at the Waldo Canyon burn scar area. Gov. John Hickenlooper and Lt. Gov. Joe Garcia will address volunteers at the project site to mark Colorado United Day, a statewide day of service that commemorates the one year anniversary of last year’s historic floods.
VOC regularly highlights different VOC leaders, in all capacities, so that we can share with you the inspiring work they do to care for Colorado's outdoors! Here, we'd like to recognize Robert (Rosie) Rosenzweig. For those who might not know Rosie by name, you might recognize him by his signature clothing style - shorts. Always shorts. Even in snow.
