Description

Many WCNR students and community members across Colorado volunteer with CSFS to gain valuable experience in areas such as: wildfire and fuels mitigation, education and public awareness, urban forestry, tree plantings, trail design and construction, watershed protection, insect and disease identification, general community and/or landowner assistance. The CSFS Volunteer Program offers two to three volunteer events per month. CSFS volunteers have the opportunity to participate in valuable training sessions on a variety of topics, including how to conduct public information and outreach activities, conservation education, CSFS Seedling Tree Nursery tours, and safe operation and maintenance of forestry equipment. The CSFS provides educational outreach and technical assistance to achieve proper forest stewardship. Many CSFS Volunteers are also trained in Project Learning Tree, an internationally acclaimed Pre-K through 12th grade natural resources education program hosted by the CSFS, and several other state university natural resources departments. Supported and delivered by state coordinators in all states, PLT is a network of natural resource professionals and formal educators. The PLT curriculum has been provided for 35 years through professional development.
