“Our Members, Volunteers, and Sponsors are the real force behind all that we do. They are amazing folks who care deeply about our public lands. We have such fun at our projects and get so much accomplished,” said Guff Van Vooren, FDRD’s Executive Director. “With our diverse offerings of 2006 volunteer opportunities, we hope our community members will feel that one of them was made just for them!”

FDRD is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization comprised of local citizens who joined with the Dillon Ranger District (DRD) in 2004 to provide opportunities for community members to play a more active role in the sustainable management of local National Forest lands. FDRD’s mission is to promote stewardship of the White River National Forest in Summit County through partnerships, volunteer service, education, and support. FDRD provides an avenue for those who care about the Forest in their backyard to contribute to its stewardship.

For more information on FDRD, including membership, board member and steering committee participation, and volunteer opportunities, including those on the Summer Calendar, contact Guff Van Vooren at HYPERLINK “” or 970-389-6058, or visit HYPERLINK “”

FDRD Volunteers pulled up barbed wire in an elk migration corridor last summer. They will get a chance to add to their volunteer efforts by participating in the various efforts included on the Summit County 2006 Summer Volunteer Calendar.
