Larimer County Offices, Courts, and District Attorney will be closed on February 17, 2020, in observance of the Presidents’ Day holiday. The Larimer County Landfill will be open. Critical services at Larimer County are not disrupted by closures.

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – HistoriCorps, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to engaging volunteers in the rehabilitation of historic structures on publicly accessible lands, in partnership with Larimer County Natural Resources, will restore the Soderberg Ranch at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space from Sept. 15 to Oct. 4, 2019. 

Horsetooth Mountain Open Space is a stupendous and well-loved public resource less than 15 minutes from Fort Collins, Colo. This open space was owned by the Soderberg family until its sale to Larimer County in the mid-1980s. The Soderberg Ranch, the project site, is in a prominent location near Horsetooth Reservoir, which is adjacent to the open space. The local community has taken steps to ensure this site and the surrounding land remains free from development so that not only history buffs but also hikers, mountain bikers and other outdoor lovers from around the country can take advantage of this treasured piece of Colorado. 

Volunteers will join HistoriCorps’ preservation experts at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space to restore several structures on the Soderberg Ranch, in an effort to ensure the historic structures can continue to serve as a site of historic interpretation and education. 

Volunteers may sign up for multi-day sessions from Sept. 15-20, Sept. 22-27 and Sept. 29 - Oct. 4 and are asked to commit to the entire session, not select days. Complementary camping is available at nearby Horsetooth Reservoir campgrounds during each session, including campsites with electrical hookups. HistoriCorps provides meals, tools, training and equipment. Volunteers are responsible for their own transportation to and from the project site.
