Aquatic Nuisance Species (ANS) Inspections
Aquatic Nuisance Species - Clean, Drain, Dry! Stop invasive species by helping inspect water vessels. This is an important position for the protection of natural resources from non-native species that threaten wildlife, drinking water/irrigation and all water related outdoor recreation in the State of Colorado. Daily interaction with park visitors requires effective communication and public relations skills.
Regular commitment for scheduling purposes
Feel great about helping keep Colorado's waters clean! Allows you to get outside and chat with boaters about anything ranging from boat operation to the best fishing spots! Learn a lot about boats! Learn all about aquatic nuisance species!

Helping people understand the importance of Leave No Trace
FULL HOOK-UPS (water, sewer, 50 and 30-amp service) for campground hosts. Conveniently located 25 minutes east of Denver, Barr Lake is famous for its bird watching opportunities, but there is more to the park than birds! Hiking trails, boating opportunities for small boats, and hand-propelled and sailing crafts make Barr Lake a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of nearby Denver. This park does not have campgrounds, but we are looking for volunteer park hosts. There are 4 park host sites located around the park. Hosts perform general maintenance around the park, serve at the nature center, the entrance station, and support aquatic nuisance species (ANS) boat inspectors.
Walk trails to provide information to visitors. Volunteers must act as responsible and inclusive role models exhibiting a friendly face to the public, great personal trail etiquette, and leave no trace practices.
