About the Stewardship Site:
Just off I-70 near the border of Clear Creek and Jefferson Counties, countless commuters speed by Floyd Hill every day without stopping to visit. Thanks to Mountain Area Land Trust (MALT) and the Open Space programs of both counties, a significant portion of Floyd Hill will now be open to the public and eventually offer a number of hiking and mountain biking trails that connect to both Clear Creek Canyon and the Peaks to Plains Trail.
About the Volunteer Experience:
Join us on National Get Outdoors Day as we embark on the first of three volunteer projects we have at Floyd Hill this year, part of a new two-year partnership! This is a great opportunity for volunteers ages 12+ to meet people from across the Front Range, discover a new recreation area, and play an important role in developing a new trail system near Denver. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, so grab a group, get outside, and give back!
Save the date for Trail Construction @ Floyd Hill w/ Colorado Native on August 25!
About the Overall Impact:
By breaking ground on a new trail in Floyd Hill Open Space, volunteers will contribute to the development of an expansive trail system that will ultimately provide miles of hiking and mountain biking opportunities for residents and visitors alike. Volunteers will also help lessen the impact on other, more popular trails by opening access to this new recreation area.
- Minors: All youth under 16 must be accompanied by an adult 21 years or older on single-day projects.
- Parking, Food & Facilities: Volunteers can take either a shuttle or a short, moderate hike to get from the parking area to the work site. Port-o-lets will be available throughout the work area, and our volunteer Crew Chefs will provide a light breakfast and lunch.
- Cancellation: Our land manager partners rely on VOC volunteers to accomplish critical stewardship needs, and our projects often have wait lists. If you need to cancel, please contact Jamie Burke at 303-715-1010 ext. 116 as soon as possible so we can free your spot for another volunteer and have a full workforce.
