Volunteering for conservation

It's a small world in Colorado conservation. Over the years many of our staff (and former staff) have served in volunteer positions with a number of other Colorado non-profits and coalitions, including the Colorado Native Plant Society, the Colorado Natural Areas Program, the Colorado Rare Plant Technical Committee, the Colorado chapter of the Wildlife Society, local Audubon chapters, the Colorado Fourteeners Initiative, the Shortgrass Prairie Partnership, the Colorado Renewables and Conservation Collaborative, the Colorado Noxious Weed Advisory Committee, and more.

When they aren't working or playing in Colorado's beautiful environment, CNHP staff keep busy by lending their expertise to other organizations, leading field trips, giving presentations and workshops, and working to build and strengthen our state's conservation community.

CNHP Ecologist Renée Rondeau recently led a Colorado Native Plant Society field trip to Pueblo Chemical Depot to identify prairie plants and view a riparian restoration project.
