Help Keep Boulder Beautiful, Volunteer to Be a Park Champ
Want to give back and get outside? We need the help of our community more than ever to keep parks and public spaces beautiful and clean for recreation. Become a Park Champ and care for a site you adopt
We hope this program can ensure a basic level of maintenance in our public spaces and support community and individual mental health, connection and purpose. It will also allow our operations staff, which is limited at this time, to focus on more technical work, while providing community members with opportunities for stewardship.
Volunteers will commit to work independently between 3 to 5 hours per week for three months but may use their discretion on when to complete tasks each week. The tasks for each site differ but may include weeding, invasive species removal, trail maintenance, graffiti removal and more.
Volunteers will be assigned to a park close to home to comply with the statewide safer-at-home order. Please keep in mind, that you must be able to strictly follow all public health guidelines to ensure the safety and health of our community. These guidelines include maintaining 6 feet or more of physical distance and wearing a face covering. Please note that, beginning May 9, if you are more than 12 years old, you must wear a face-covering in public anywhere in Boulder County where social distancing of 6 feet cannot be maintained. The city encourages those who may be in high-risk health categories to refrain from volunteering at this time.
