Family Nature Night Assistant


The Schools and Outdoor Learning Environments (SOLE) program has one mission: connect kids to the outdoors! In a typical year, volunteers with the SOLE program help in our outreach/engagement efforts at Family Nature Nights or similar events but daytime and state parks focused called Family Fun Days. Family Nature Nights are hosted at each SOLE school (over 50 schools around Colorado)! These events bring together outdoor-related partners to offer a fun, festival style event for families of 4th graders. This event is designed to give families a hands-on opportunity to become familiar with the many exciting educational and recreational activities our partners and state parks offer. We are working hard to create new learning opportunities for our students as well as new ways for volunteers to support our programs. Please contact The SOLE team for more information. Thank you for your interest in volunteering with us!

Friends of Colorado State Parks


The Friends of Colorado State Parks is building a network of everyday people who work to protect and care for the places in which they play, recreate, and adventure. We accomplish this by providing support for local Friends groups affiliated with individual State Parks across Colorado. Now more than ever before, our State Parks need the support of Friends. As a Friends of Colorado State Parks board member, you help train and educate local State Park Friends groups in nonprofit management and unite these groups in our collective mission to protect and enhance Colorado’s most important resources. We are especially excited to connect with committed volunteers who have experience in any of the following areas: • Volunteer engagement • Fiscal management best practices • Accounting • Fundraising • Strategic planning • Community and youth engagement • Marketing • Social media outreach • Nonprofit board member recruitment/retention best practices Statewide "Friends" members attend board meetings, act as a liaison to contact and support local Friends, organize two annual Friends Rendezvous to bring together Friends groups from across the state to share successes, challenges, and offer training on topics of interest. Friends of Colorado State Parks is a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit, but board member time counts toward CPW volunteer hours. If you are interested in joining the Friends of Colorado State Parks Board, please send a resume and cover letter to info@friendsofcoloradostateparks.org. The Board will review your submission, take a vote at a board meeting, and get back in touch with you.
