Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
The High Plains Environmental Center engages developers, builders, businesses and residents in making their community a "living laboratory" that provides integrated, leading edge examples of community design, land stewardship, eco-literacy and sustainable living that are grounded in reality and replicable.
Are you interested in making a difference in your local community? Would you like to gain or improve your gardening skills? Do you have a passion for sustainability? If you answered yes to any of these questions, HPEC might be perfect for you!
As an environmental nonprofit, we need your help to continue our commitment to environmental stewardship and sustainable living in Northern Colorado. Beginning in March, HPEC will be hosting weekly gardening and land stewardship volunteer projects on our 275-acre site every Saturday (expect for the fourth Saturday of every month due to our monthly lecture series) starting at 9:00 am. Projects typically last between 2-3 hours. Individuals, families, and groups are all welcome! No skills required. Come out and meet new friends, learn about plants and help us grow!
Can you see yourself volunteering at HPEC? If so, please email Kelley at Kelley@suburbitat.org or call 970-342-9533.
At 9:00 am we will meet in the parking lot at 2698 Bluestem Willow Drive (not our office location off of Piney River Drive). We will provide gloves, tools, and everything else needed for the project. Please dress for the weather - hat, layers, and clothes you don’t mind getting a little dirty. Just bring a full bottle of water and your smiling face!
Volunteer projects include, but are not limited to: transplanting, planting, weeding, harvesting, seeding, and prep work. Projects vary depending on the month and our needs at the time.
