Northern Colorado-- Larimer County Natural Resources is excited to welcome back HistoriCorps, a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to engaging volunteers in the rehabilitation of historic structures on publicly accessible lands, this summer to Red Mountain Open Space, from June 28 through July 30.

In 2004, Larimer County Natural Resources purchased Red Mountain Open Space as to protect natural, visual, and cultural resources and provide public recreation access.  

Larimer County, in partnership with HistoriCorps, is seeking both local and visiting volunteers to join experts to protect and preserve an 1870’s one-story pioneer cabin/schoolhouse at Red Mountain Open Space. Historic restoration activities include reconstructing and restacking the dry sandstone foundation, replacing several sill and wall logs, and weatherizing the structure to prevent future deterioration. This critical work will preserve and maintain the structure as a physical remnant of the area’s pioneer agricultural and ranching heritage.

The four volunteer work sessions are Monday through Friday and include tent or truck camping and food. Spots are limited, don’t delay, and register today! Volunteer safety protocols for protection from Covid-19 will be strictly followed during the project. No dogs allowed. For more information, visit https://historicorps.org/rmos-school-co-2021/
