Come help restore vegetation in Woodward's backyard! Volunteers will help plant 40+ Native shrubs and trees at Homestead Natural Area. This area used to be a golf course and was considered a 'dead-zone' for Wildlife. By helping plant trees and shrubs we are creating appealing and safe areas for wildlife to thrive. Volunteers will be digging, planting, watering and mulching plants. We will finish with a clean-up of the area.
Children, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles are all welcome to join in on the festivities!

Volunteers pre-stuff trick or treat bags with the event sponsor's goodies! This project involves standing and bending.

Putting in posts and storefronts for the Treatsylvania Event, also raking, painting, etc in preparation for the event

Volunteer to "shadow-plant" trees near adjacent ash trees in Spring Canyon Community Park. Our ash trees are threatened by the Emerald Ash Borer, an invasive species currently quarantined in Boulder County. Shadow planting is planting a 2-inch caliper trees underneath the susceptible ash trees. This allows the positive benefits trees provide to continue once the ash tree needs to be removed due to eventual emerald ash borer infestation.

Volunteers will receive lunch. Please bring your own gloves and wear closed toed shoes. Sunscreen, materials, and tools are provided. Kids projects available. If we finish planting early, mulching projects will also be available. We will be near the playground off of Horsetooth Road. All ages welcome.

Gallery Hosts ensure a positive museum experience for our visitors.

Gallery Hosts encourage visitors to explore and learn from our interactives and exhibits. Gallery Hosts commit to three 2-hour shifts per month. Gallery Hosts are not necessarily docents or expected to know deep content or history/science, but instead have a passion and enthusiasm for learning, discovery and exploration of the museum and a willingness to share this with visitors.

The Gardens on Spring Creek is a community botanic garden located in midtown Fort Collins. During the month of December we have an event called Garden of Lights. After months of hanging thousands of LED lights and preparing for the event, we are open every night of the week to the public. Every year we add new light displays. This year we would like to add a life size light bright for visitors to interact with as well as a new photo board. We are in need of a group who would like to take on this project. This is a great DIY project for volunteers with some tool and building experience.
