SNOWMASS VILLAGE - Scott Gordon, of Snowmass Village, was recently named Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers' Volunteer of the Year for his work with the nonprofit over the past several years.
Gordon received the recognition at the nonprofit's annual awards ceremony and dinner on Oct. 25 at the Glenwood Springs Community Center.
In 2007, Gordon reached out to RFOV seeking information on how to maintain trails, specifically the Rim Trail that runs behind his house. That launched his engagement with RFOV and volunteering on projects. In 2009, he joined the project selection committee and then in 2010, the RFOV board of directors, and he now serves as the board secretary. Gordon has also manned trailhead tables, helped set up and present RFOV Road Shows, posted project fliers, written articles for the newsletter, and helped coordinate, support and recruit volunteers for RFOV through his position with Alpine Bank. He is an ambassador for RFOV and stewardship of trails and public lands, according to a statement.
RFOV promotes stewardship of public lands through volunteer trail and conservation projects.
