Each year, Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) awards emerging leaders in outdoor stewardship with the Steve Austin Training Scholarship. The scholarship offers recipients the opportunity to improve both their leadership and stewardship skills with $160 in waived fees towards our Outdoor Stewardship Institute (OSI) training programs.
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
