Ongoing Opportunities - NEW INFO FOR 2022

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 how to record the information for land management planning. Volunteers will be equipped with materials, tools, and supplies to go out independently to locate and treat them in designated natural areas during the growing season. 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 in-person on Tuesday, April 19th from 6:00 - 8:00 p.m. at the Family FunPlex Community Room, 1501 65th Avenue. The training will include a short field session.

Read more about this opportunity.

To apply, please email Beth Ray no later than April 12th.
