CORE employees are passionate about the outdoors and giving back to Colorado. Fourteen CORE employees & family joined the Volunteers for Outdoor Colorado (VOC) on the Herman Gulch Trail on August 12-13, camping the night along the Boomerang Trail at the Loveland Ski Area (VOC basecamp for the project).
All VOC crews were able to install or repair 37 drainage structures, install 5 rock steps and 28 straw wattles and close 100' of social trail. All at 11,000 feet of elevation! The efforts totaled 2300’ of trail maintenance and will help maintain and sustain the popular Herman Gulch Trail along I-70.
CORE's culture encourages all staff to give back to the community and organizations they are passionate about. All CORE employees receive 2 paid volunteer days annually.
VOC is a statewide nonprofit volunteer organization dedicated to motivating and enabling people to become active stewards of Colorado’s natural resources. Since 1984, VOC’s award-winning volunteer, youth, and leadership training programs have engaged nearly 110,000 people of all ages in caring for Colorado’s outdoors – a total donated labor value of $22 million. Such volunteer efforts have made a lasting impact on Colorado through hands-on work in fire and flood restoration, trail building and maintenance, tree planting and re-forestation, and more.
