Fort Collins Natural Areas is a city department comprised of a group of over 50 protected public lands, most of which are open to the public, for recreational activities such as hiking, biking, birdwatching, tubing, learning, etc. These public lands are managed with resource protection, stewardship, and enjoyment in mind and allow for the public to engage with nature near their backyard.
Volunteer opportunities exist to learn more about resource management including volunteer naturalists, rangers, gardeners, trail builders, and more.
Paid internships sometimes are available for students wanting to learn more about public engagement, outdoor educational programming, and resource management.
Seasonal positions working in a variety of fields such as trails and visitor amenities, resource management, facilities management, and public engagement are available during the summer months.
