Rocky Mountain Field Institute actively engages thousands of community volunteers every year through the completion of trail and restoration projects that help conserve and protect our treasured public landscapes.About Us
I've come to Garden of the Gods on an almost weekly basis for the past 3 years and it was fulfilling to finally be able to give back to it, even if just a little. The RMFI team is passionate about the work they do and it definitely gets passed down to the volunteers and keeps them motivated throughout the day as well. The entire team was kind, inclusive, knowledgable, and approachable. Can't wait to volunteer again.

Thanks to all who made Hot Spot Week Possible!
The Hot Spot Program identifies areas suffering from severe human-related impacts that can thrive again with Leave No Trace solutions. Each location receives a unique, site-specific blend of programs aimed at a healthy and sustainable recovery. Since 2010, Leave No Trace has conducted over 100 Hot Spots in national parks and forests, state parks, city parks and more. RMFI successfully hosted two volunteer days at Palmer Park and Stratton Open Space during Hot Spot week in partnership with LNT and the City of Colorado Springs. Thanks to everyone who made this possible! We look forward to continued appreciation and celebration of all our City has to offer.
