Join YVSC and community partners like Colorado State Forest Service and U.S. Forest Service in increasing forest health and/or forest regeneration in post-burn areas.

Sign Up to Volunteer


The Yampa Valley Climate Crew gives community members access to volunteer opportunities that address the climate threat facing our planet, so that they, too, can be a part of the climate action solution. These projects will include tree planting, wetland and riparian habitat restoration, and site maintenance, all of which increase carbon sequestration and resilience.
