City of Boulder, Open Space and Mountain Parks Volunteer Program

Open Space and Mountain Parks (OSMP) Volunteer Services provides programs, projects, and events to community members and organizations year-round. OSMP connects with the community through offering many opportunities for people to give back to the land in meaningful ways.

Ways to Volunteer:

Become a Project Volunteer

Project volunteers participate in one-day or multi-day, on-the-ground service learning projects. We work with corporations, schools, organizations, and colleges and cater to your specific opportunity need. If these projects do not work for your group’s timeframe, know that we will work with you to schedule your specific date(s), the type of project, and duration of day. OSMP offers restoration, trail building, agriculture, ditch maintenance, integrated pest management, and forestry projects. We look forward to working with you!

Register for One-Day Projects.

Become a Program Volunteer

Program volunteers assist the department annually in carrying out its mission and goals by committing to seasonal and long term assignments. Program volunteers are Trail Guides/Park Patrollers, Raptor and Bat Wildlife Monitors, Rare Plant Monitors, Volunteer Naturalists who lead interpretative hikes, Flagstaff Nature Center Hosts, and more. Become a program volunteer today and join an esteemed team of volunteers that are essential to the success of these programs.
