Larimer County Offices, Courts, and District Attorney will be closed February 18, 2019 for the Presidents' Day holiday. The Landfill will be open. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.

LOVELAND, Colo. – Do you want to inspire curiosity for nature in people of all ages? Do you love spending time outdoors? Join Larimer County Department of Natural Resources as a Volunteer Naturalist!

Volunteer Naturalists teach school groups, talk with visitors to Larimer County's parks and open spaces, and lead hikes on ecology, geology, local history and more.

"Being a Volunteer Naturalist is a great way to enhance your understanding of the natural world and gain valuable and rewarding volunteer experience," said educator Heather Young. "Plus, you're a part of a community that cares about the environment and inspires others to appreciate it."

No experience in the fields of environmental education or ecology is required. Volunteer Naturalists must attend a training, pass a background check and have transportation.

An in-depth training will be held on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the day for three consecutive weeks starting March 21, 2018, with instruction on teaching, public speaking, geology, ecology and more. 

Apply by Feb. 28 at
