Youth and Corporate Group Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer stewardship is a great way to foster team building, civic engagement, and personal development! By supporting Rocky Mountain National Park and the Conservancy, your team will make a meaningful impact to public lands, while enjoying these beautiful landscapes alongside friends, teammates, and coworkers.

The Rocky Mountain Conservancy provides volunteer stewardship opportunities for organized youth and corporate groups. The Conservancy works with groups to create volunteer experiences alongside National Park Service staff in Rocky Mountain National Park. Projects are tailored specifically to the group size, interests, and ages. Projects may range from 1-hour to multi-day (with camping).

Please contact Geoff Elliot, Director of Conservation, at Geoff.Elliot@RMConservancy.org for more information.
