Volunteer

The opportunities to volunteer for all sorts of activities in CoNPS are endless.

If you wish to volunteer for projects out in the field, the Field Studies Program conducts a variety of research projects and BioBlitzes every summer.  The Restoration Committee also conducts a variety of restoration projects, usually with our partner agencies, from seed collection to planting native plants.  We also promote conservation projects conducted by our partner agencies like the Denver Botanic Gardens (Rare Plant Monitors Program), the Colorado Natural History Program (Adopt-a-Rare Plant Program), and the Colorado Natural Heritage Program (Natural Areas Stewards.

If you are more interested in indoor activities, CoNPS has ten committees which cover topics from running the CoNPS Annual Conference, to running horticulture programs to writing articles for our quarterly newsletter, Aquilegia. Committees are open to all members and sign-up is easy to do on this website.
