Ongoing Opportunities

Looking for a way to get involved, but can’t commit to set times?  Become a Weed Warrior!

The City of Greeley Natural Areas & Trails Division manages the City’s 1000+ acres of designated natural areas. Many sites have invasive weed species growing in them.  Interested volunteers will receive training on identifying and managing several of these species and then are equipped to go out independently to locate and treat them in designated natural areas.  This provides an opportunity for citizens to take an active part in natural area stewardship on their own time by helping keep these ecosystems healthy and reporting any issues they see.

Training for volunteers will take place virtually on Thursday, June 10th from 10 a.m. to noon. The training will be recorded for individuals who cannot attend.  We will also offer a 1-hour training session in the field on a date to be determined by participants.
