Colorado Preservation, Inc.

HistoriCorps is a national initiative engaging volunteer workforces in historic preservation projects on public and publicly accessible lands. HistoriCorps is based in the Rocky Mountain region but will coordinate and instruct projects throughout the United States. Volunteers and students work with trades specialists including logworkers, masons, window restorers, roofers, and solar energy technicians to preserve historic resources on and near public lands. We optimize teaching and learning opportunities for volunteer work crews. Over the course of a weekend, week or summer volunteers have the opportunity to gain many valuable trades skills that they can apply to their personal and professional lives.
