Jeffco Open Space Hosts Volunteer Recruitment Fairs
Explore all the possible volunteer positions for Jeffco Open Space, outdoors or indoors, at one of two Volunteer Recruitment Fairs in late February. The fairs are on Thursday, February 25 from 4 to 8 p.m. and Saturday, February 27 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Jeffco Open Space Main Office, 700 Jefferson County Parkway, Suite 100, Golden, CO 80401. Refreshments will be served.
Applications for most positions are accepted from February through mid-March. Applications for 2016 will be available at the fairs or at http://jeffco.us/open-space/volunteer/job-descriptions/. In addition to exploring ongoing positions, fairgoers can learn more about field projects for individuals and groups.
Jeffco Open Space has been the natural choice for volunteering since 1972. Ever since a grassroots campaign resulted in the creation of the agency, volunteers have been pitching in for parks—from helping to preserve natural resources and educating visitors to blazing new trails.
