About Us
Volunteer moving slab of granite

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.
