Other Ways To Help

It’s not all sweat and toil! There are lots of ways you can participate on project days, or whenever your schedule permits.


  • Project day ambassadors and kitchen crew: Help staff the registration table, chat with and bring refreshments to volunteers throughout the day, or serve the post-project meal. Sign up for 2011 projects here.
  • Project Technical Advisor: RFOV uses the skills of landscape architects, carpenters, engineers, horticulturists, and other outdoor enthusiasts for technical guidance on our projects. Help design boardwalks, trails, habitat restoration, etc. Contact: David Hamilton at 970-927-8241 or rfov@sopris.net
  • Office assistance: Help RFOV with general office duties, entering data, answering phones, mailings and more, depending on your interest. Flexible hours. Contact: Mary Sundblom at 927-8241 or rfov@sopris.net
  • Adopt-A-Trail/Group Work Days: Keep our trails and open spaces beautiful! As budgets tighten, it is more and more important that we maintain our own trails and keep our parks in good working order. Our public land is our backyard. Help organize your business, club, or group and get involved in this commitment to stewardship of our public lands. Contact: David Hamilton at 927-8241 or rfov@sopris.net or see Organize a Group Work Day.

  • Become a contributing photographer: Photos are an essential tool for showing volunteers and donors what we do and where we do it. Project and event photos are always needed and welcome for use in newsletters, advertising, educational programs, and this website. Submit photos by email to rfov@sopris.net anytime. And don’t forget to enter your best shots in our annual photo contest.
