With almost 2 million annual visitors in 1,500 acres, this beloved city park sees 100 times the visitor density of Rocky Mountain National Park. The Garden of the Gods Restoration Program connects youth and adults to the sustainable restoration of the park's trails, open spaces, and native vegetation. From April through early June and September through mid-November, we run an average of 40 workdays. With bucket brigades and lots of rocks and dirt, our volunteers focus on restoring erosion gullies and bare areas, reconstructing trails, and revegetating with native seed and plants.
We work with individuals and community groups to accomplish the work. We welcome schools, universities, athletic teams, military groups, religious and civic organizations, and individuals to join us in a rock-moving, dirt-hauling good time. Interested in volunteering? Click here.
