Volunteer Events -150 Tree Planting

Plant a Tree

Volunteer to Plant a Tree!

Join us in our efforts to plant 150 trees to celebrate the City's Sesquicentennial celebrations!
We hope to plant ~20 trees at each of the three volunteer opportunities listed below. Thank you for helping us increase our campus tree canopy and leaving a lasting legacy at UCCS!

This year, due to COVID-19 impacts, we are only allowing 25 UCCS volunteers total for each of the volunteer opportunities. Please review and complete the steps below to reserve your spot to volunteer with us.
