Help the Conservancy by volunteering!
Volunteerism has been not only the bedrock of conservation in Clear Creek Canyon, but the pinnacle as well. Going as far back as 1919, when the 8-mile-long historic Beaver Brook Trail was first laid out along the Canyon’s south benches by pioneer Strode Ralston and the Colorado Mountain Club, volunteers have contributed valuable time, energy, ideas, and inspiration—taking us literally to new heights.
In March, 2009, volunteers Vera Moritz and Helen Dawson were awarded Outstanding Service Awards by CCLC in recognition of their many years of contributions. Helen, who joined the Board in 1994, organized the CCLC spring flower hikes on the Beaver Brook Trail and was a willing volunteer in many other tasks. Vera was instrumental in establishing CCLC’s Conservation Easement Monitoring Program and insured its operation through force of will and hard work. We are forever indebted to Vera and Helen, and all the volunteers who have contributed over the years!
Walk the pristine trails of our Protected Places
Would you like to help? We are looking for volunteers to help monitor our protected places, and contribute in other significant ways to the preservation of Clear Creek Canyon.
If you enjoy being on the land, listening to the leaves of aspen trees as they rustle in a cool breeze, hiking among the ponderosas and wild columbines, or having the rare opportunity to visit protected places not open to public access, then Contact us about volunteering.
We would love to hear from you!
More Ways to Get Involved
Attend a Board Meeting
The Clear Creek Land Conservancy holds quarterly board meetings which are open to the public, and yes, we welcome your presence!
If you are interested in attending a meeting to learn about our latest projects, to find out more about the properties already preserved by the Conservancy, or to find out additional ways in which you might help such as taking photos of our protected places, our wildlife, our wild flowers, perhaps even helping to identify and eradicate noxious weeds, or helping with surveying and GPS monitoring, please Contact us.
Volunteer as a Legal Intern
We also have opportunities for law student volunteers to work for the land trust (for academic credit). We have had a number work on legal projects with us learning land conservation law, including our Executive Director Maggie Korey!
