Here are vital steps you can take as a
to shape the future of your forest:
As a Volunteer Wilderness Ranger, you play a crucial role in
the White River National Forest. You will be the officially
uniformed USDA Forest Service representative interacting with
trail users. Volunteer Wilderness Rangers are friendly and
informative, educating trail users on wilderness ethics and
regulations. Often times you will be asked to identify wildlife,
plants, and geography of the area. If you can't wait to put
on hiking or riding boots, are in good physical shape, and
love working outdoors, join us as a Volunteer Wilderness Ranger.
Do you enjoy meeting people from all over the world? Informing
visitors about the Forest is a key duty. With your help, visitors
can knowledgeably and safely plan adventures as they explore
all that the Forest has to offer.
Would you like to help people with planning their visit to the White River National Forest? Would you like to share your insights on local happenings? Join our team of courteous representatives and enjoy welcoming the visiting public to our beautiful community. As a Visitor Information Services Volunteer you will interact with the guests sharing your exceptional knowledge of trails, camping, wilderness practices, and fun things to do in town. Visitor Information Services Volunteers will assist visitors at the Aspen-Highlands Visitor Center and the Sopris Ranger District. We ask for a one-day per week commitment especially throughout the summer-fall season.
As a volunteer you are invited
to participate in the nationally accredited Master Naturalist
Program sponsored by the Forest Conservancy. The goal of the
Forest Conservancy Master Naturalist Program is to build the
competency of our volunteers as skilled educators, knowledgeable
field ecologists, and dedicated conservationists. You will be
trained to 'read' the landscape, develop
knowledge of and respect for the environment, and educate others
in natural resource conservation practices. Join our team of
Certified Master Naturalists and skillfully connect people with
nature, motivate change, and inspire citizen action.
We need many volunteers with a variety of skills to keep the
Forest Conservancy moving forward. You can help us plan events,
write articles or take photographs for our newsletter, or join
our fundraising efforts. Whatever your skills and interests,
the Forest Conservancy has a place for you.
Your active participation translates into long-lasting results!
