Friends of the Dillon Ranger District is looking for help as it kicks off its 2014 volunteer season.
The nonprofit partners with the Dillon Ranger District, which manages the White River National Forest land that makes up three-fourths of Summit County, to inspire ecological stewardship.
The organization is looking for committed, passionate volunteers to join the Forest Stewards Program in any of the following initiatives:
Ranger patroller: Hike your favorite trails, or host a popular trailhead, in a Forest Service volunteer uniform to educate trail users. Applications due May 23 and training date scheduled for June 1.
Crew leader: Gain new skills and lead groups during trail and service projects. Applications due May 23. Training date to be determined.
Forest monitoring program: Help document current forest conditions and how they are changing to address forest health issues. This is a partner program with the Forest Health Task Force. Training dates May 24 and 28.
If you can’t commit to the Forest Steward Program but still want to help, check out the organization’s online calendar this summer at fdrd.org and register for one of the one-day projects.
For more information or to apply, visit fdrd.org or contact Scott Fussell, program manager, at 970-262-3449 or email@example.com.
