Communications / Arts


Do you have skills for communicating with others through creative writing, photography, computer help in the office or from home, setting up events, displays, musical talents or other creative arts?  Volunteer to share these multimedia skills with the public to draw interest to conservation efforts and natural resources that bring Douglas County’s rich landscapes to life.  Whether it’s helping to convey etiquette for trail users, the website, or showcasing new properties, your talents can be valuable assistance to Douglas County Open Space and Natural Resources.
