Friends Groups

[spb_text_block pb_margin_bottom=”no” pb_border_bottom=”no” width=”1/1″ el_position=”first last”]

A big part of our mission is working with volunteer citizens groups who will speak for particular open space parcels, parks or trails, organize volunteer days, and raise funds for specific needs. We help them organize, and guide them on governance, volunteerism, advocacy techniques, fundraising methods and much more.

Here’s a list of websites for the Friends Groups in the Pikes Peak area. If you have questions about a Friends Group that is not listed, or would like to create a Friends Group for a park or open space that is currently without one, please contact TOSC.
