Schild: RFOV thanks their volunteers and partners

The Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers (RFOV) Board of Directors and staff wanted to take a moment to extend our heartfelt gratitude to the incredible volunteers and partners who have dedicated their time and effort to steward our region’s vital public lands. In 2023, we mobilized 1,457 unique volunteers who contributed 7,757 volunteer hours to improve 52 miles of trail, restore 19 acres of habitat and degraded landscape, and mitigate 8 acres of fuel to reduce wildfire threat.

Through their dedication, passion, and hard work, RFOV volunteers have not only made a difference with on-the-ground impact, but also inspired others to join in and support our mission to promote stewardship of our public lands.

Without their invaluable support, achieving our goals would have been an insurmountable task. Their generosity and commitment have touched the lives of residents and visitors in this region in ways that will have a lasting impact.

Everyone at RFOV would like to convey our deepest appreciation and admiration to every volunteer involved. Their diverse talents and perspectives have enriched our initiatives and propelled us forward.

Thank you for providing a platform that allows us to acknowledge these remarkable individuals. Together, we celebrate their spirit and unwavering commitment to making a positive difference in our community.

With gratitude,

Becca Schild, Executive Director, Roaring Fork Outdoor Volunteers
