Jeffco Open Space has been the natural choice for volunteering since 1972. Ever since a grassroots campaign resulted in the creation of our agency, volunteers have been pitching in for their parks – from helping to preserve natural resources and educating visitors to blazing new trails.
We will coordinate projects for groups of 10 or more people, including corporate events during weekday hours. Through forest stewardship and clean-up projects, you will build camaraderie and better parks for today and tomorrow. More information on group volunteer project types.
