1. Volunteer In Colorado
V Outdoors is an on line, search able database of volunteer and training events hereafter "Volunteer Opportunities" offered by Colorado's land managers, nonprofit organizations, community groups, and community organizations (hereafter "Organizational Users") connecting individuals and groups with volunteer stewardship opportunities. V Outdoors is a free service, open to any person or Organizational User and is intended to provide information and registration services for outdoor related Volunteer Opportunities. Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (hereafter VOC) hosts and administers the V Outdoors web site and database management system.
Volunteer Opportunities (including educational events and internships) that fall within the following definition of stewardship (adopted from the Blueprint for Outdoor Stewardship) are included on V Outdoors:
Stewardship of Colorado's public and protected lands and natural resources is the responsible use and care of these natural resources through:
- Encouraging Colorado's citizens and visitors to develop an ethic about appropriate use of protected lands and natural resources,
- Promoting conservation and sustainability,
- Caring for the health of the land for future generations,
- Providing educational opportunities,
- Active care for and management of resources with the goal of improving or maintaining ecological health.
V Outdoors is intended as a community service to engage community members in land stewardship activities as described above. Volunteer Opportunities are screened for appropriate content, however, V Outdoors and VOC make no representations or warranties about the nature, validity, or quality of any posted Volunteer Opportunity nor is any Volunteer Opportunity endorsed by V Outdoors. No representations about the quality of the Volunteer Opportunity is made by V Outdoors about any opportunity listed on this website. Volunteer is encouraged to look into all opportunities to determine his/her suitability for that Volunteer Opportunity. Registration for a Volunteer Opportunity is with the posting agency or organization, not with V Outdoors. Questions about a specific opportunity or registration should be directed to the posting organization.
