Come help us clean up one of our newest Natural Areas - Goose Hollow! This area was just recently purchased and needs a little love before we open it to the public.

Natural Areas is partnering with Odell Brewing to make this happen.

We will be picking up trash, getting on kayaks to clear vegetation and collect trash within the pond, and creating our sign to let the public know it is open! Child-friendly projects available.

After all of our hard work, we will head to Odell's for lunch and refreshments!

Help is needed prepping and general cleanup of the garden at The Farm at Martinez Park.

Treatsylvania is a special event for The Farm that has been running the last 26 years. The storefronts that kids trick or treat at are in need of re building or a new design is needed for easier moving and storage. Each storefront is painted with a Halloween or sponsor specific design. Currently they are made of particle board and are quite heavy to move, however are very durable.

Assist individuals and staff at our Adult Care house in downtown Fort Collins. Activities include arts & crafts, puzzles, learning new skills, etc. Staff members are always present in this setting. As this is a 24 hour facility, hours can be completed during the evening or on weekends.

The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery is an interactive science and history museum, dedicated to creating meaningful opportunities to learn, reflect and have fun through hands-on and collections-based explorations in science, history, and culture.

We are very excited to be welcoming our first traveling exhibit, Pterosaurs: Flight in the Age of Dinosaurs, from November 17th, 2016 - April 2nd, 2017! This is the largest exhibition about these flying reptiles ever mounted in the United States. It includes casts of rare fossils such as eggs, full body impressions, and a track way. It also includes interactives that immerse visitors in the mechanics of pterosaur flight. We will have a huge volunteer need in order for this exhibit to run smoothly, and part of that need is having Pterosaur Gallery Hosts, School Group Hosts, and Greeters.

New Naturalist Training: Do you want to inspire curiosity for the natural world in people of all ages?

Do you have a penchant for event planning or marketing? Partners Mentoring Youth is in search of committee members to help out on our event and marketing committees. We have committee slots for each event we host, as well as for general marketing and mentor recruitment. The commitment is usually a monthly meeting, with the potential of an increased number of meetings as an event or marketing push draws near. This is a great way to get involved in our organization and the community, while promoting our mission to support local youth!

Partners Mentoring Youth is currently seeking adult volunteers to serve as mentors in our community-based programs across Northern Colorado. Volunteers work with youth (ages 7-17) who face significant challenges in their social, academic, and personal lives. Our Community-Based Mentors spend an average of three hours each week with a child (Junior Partner) and commit for at least one year. We match Junior Partners with Senior Partners based on shared interests, common values, and logistical preferences. Our program has impressive results, and the youth who participate gain skills, confidence, and hope for the future. Partners Mentoring Youth provides volunteers with training and support, helping every mentor to BE THE DIFFERENCE in the life of a child. All volunteers are required to meet our eligibility requirements. Be sure to check out our other volunteer opportunities as well!
