Volunteer Sort Yard Hosts Needed

Volunteer Community Forestry Sort Yard Hosts are needed at the Meeker Park (near Allenspark) and Nederland Community Sort Yards.

Volunteers help make sure that sort yards continue to be a local hub of community-based forestry information. Volunteer Sort Yard Hosts will greet people as they enter the yard, collect data on the material they are delivering, and provide information about forest ecology, bark beetles, and wildfire mitigation.

Volunteers will not be responsible for helping unload materials. Volunteers will commit to four-hour shifts and 12 hours per month. For more information, please visit the Boulder County Volunteers web page or contact Shane Milne at or 303-678-6089.
