Volunteer Orientation and Training

The success of many of Douglas Land Conservancy’s activities depends on our wonderful volunteers. However, all work and no play is not DLC’s idea of volunteering! Although DLC benefits greatly from the support of our volunteers, we want our volunteers to benefit as well.

Volunteering is a great way to share your knowledge, your expertise, your creativity, and your time with DLC while pursuing your passions, making new friends, learning new things, and having fun.

We could use your help in 2019…

Guided Hikes

guidedhikeDouglas Land Conservancy offers several guided hike opportunities throughout the year. All hikes are free and open to the public. DLC does suggest a small donation per person attending each hike (usually $5 to $10) to help us continue our mission of the protection of open space in our region of Colorado. All hike dates, times and locations are subject to change. Please check back often for updates or emailĀ [email protected] for more information or to reserve a spot for a certain hike.

Plein Air Painting Event

2014-plein-air-piccollageEach year, DLC invites several renowned artists to visit private and conserved properties in Douglas County as part of a fundraiser. The artists paint during the week, and then a portion of the proceeds from all art sales benefits the land conservancy. Last year’s event was a resounding success, and plans are already underway for DLC’s Sixth Annual Plein Air Event, coming up in June of 2019.
