By becoming a volunteer with us, you are joining a long history of community commitment to conservation. Since its inception, the Natural Areas Department has engaged volunteers on every level, from education to stewardship to leadership. Volunteers help extend outreach and strengthen community involvement. We believe that volunteers are one of our most valuable resources.
Adopters agree to care for a natural area for one year by picking up trash and reporting maintenance issues. This program provides opportunities for citizens to take an active role in restoration efforts through stewardship.
BARK Rangers are Volunteer Ranger Assistants (VRAs) and their canines that patrol on approved Natural Areas Department properties. These volunteers and their dogs serve as a visible presence in the City of Fort Collins Natural Areas Department and serve as ambassadors promoting stewardship ethics and good dog behavior while on city trails. BARK Rangers participate in education and community outreach events.
