Natural Lands Outreach Volunteers

Natural Lands Outreach Volunteers welcome and educate the users along the North Shore of the Boulder Reservoir and Coot lake about aquatic nuisance species, area-specific rules, and wildlife closures. While staffing the table and patrolling, volunteers will collect data on visitor patterns, volume, and behavior. When volunteers observe rule violations, they will contact staff that can provide further education when appropriate. Volunteers will not provide any type of enforcement, as this position will focus on monitoring and education only.

To apply, fill out the Natural Lands Outreach Volunteer Application in Count Me In!
